Strawberry Rhubarb Sauce

Bright and Cheery Summertime Sauce

Strawberry Rhubarb sauce is a big favorite here. It’s a bright and cheery sauce which is great for pancakes or waffles topped with 0% Greek yogurt and fresh strawberries. It’s so easy to make this in the Instant Pot. You can use it as a sauce over the Simple Instant Pot Cheesecake.

A Little About Rhubarb

My grandmother always referred to Rhubarb as the pie plant. She would gather the rhubarb in June and prepare it for pies but also she would freeze packages for wintertime treats. Rhubarb is very high in fiber, very low in calories and is high in Vitamin K, C and A.

Ways to use Strawberry Rhubarb Sauce

It’s not just for breakfast! Strawberry Rhubarb Sauce is also great for a lunch box treat layered with homemade fat free Greek yogurt.  You can also whisk 2 tablespoons of sauce with 1 teaspoon cider vinegar, 1 teaspoon white balsamic vinegar, 1-2 teaspoons water, pinch of salt and pepper to make a bright, cheerful oil free dressing for a mixed greens salad topped with grilled chicken, sliced strawberries and feta cheese crumbles.
