Step by Step Method

Step 1

Place strawberries in a bowl and sprinkle 2 tablespoons sugar and the lemon juice over the berries; toss. Cover and let stand at room temperature for 30 minutes or until sugar dissolves and berries are juicy. Strain through sieve; reserve berries and the juices separately. Add enough water to the juices to equal one cup.

Step 2

In a saucepan combine 1/4 cup sugar and the cornstarch; add the reserved juice into the sugar mixture; add rhubarb and 1/2 cup strawberries and cook over medium low heat until mixture boils and thickens and the rhubarb is tender (10 minutes).

Step 3

Transfer mixture to a bowl and cool to room temperature (20 minutes). Fold in remaining strawberries and the orange peel. Spoon into wine goblets and refrigerated until chilled (1 hour).

Step 4

Top with a spoonful of yogurt and garnish with mint.

This is a delicious dessert. It is like pie filling without the crust. The combination of rhubarb and strawberries goes very well together. My family used the plain greek yogurt for their topping.

Such a yummy dessert! I used lite Cool Whip for my only tweak. So glad it's rhubarb season!

Oh my gosh - ten stars! Such a simple little thing but the taste is out of this world. I love anything rhubarb - and this is like a kicked-up strawberry rhubarb pie without the calories of the crust! The orange zest adds another dimension of flavor to an already good base. Thanks for posting - this is a keeper! Made for SWT 2019 - The Traveling Tastebuds.
