Rhubarb Beet Blueberry Salad

 
I had some leftover rhubarb I had "roasted" for one of my raw desserts on Saturday, and I somehow wanted to incorporate it into dinner that night.  A few weeks ago Eric and I had enjoyed a salad with rhubarb dressing at a restaurant and I thought that might just be the perfect way to use it! I combined it with blueberries in a vinaigrette laced with chia seeds (which I love in dressing lately).  
 
 
I had enough extra rhubarb to toss it into the salad as well, which was delicious with the beets, blueberries and almonds I also added.  It was the perfect light dinner for us to enjoy on a warm day when we were saving room for  raw raspberry rhubarb crumble cheesecake!
 
 

Rhubarb Beet Blueberry Salad
Serves 4

Rhubarb:
3 cups sliced rhubarb
2 Tbsp raw coconut nectar

Dressing:
2 Tbsp chia seeds
6 Tbsp filtered water
1 1/2 cups of the prepared rhubarb
1 cup organic blueberries
3 Tbsp cider vinegar
1 Tbsp raw coconut nectar
2 Tbsp olive oil
sea salt

about 6 cups of mixed baby greens
reserved rhubarb
1 large raw red beet, cut julienne
1 1/2 cups organic blueberries
1 cup raw almonds, soaked and dehydrated


 Combine the rhubarb with the coconut nectar and spread out on a foil lined dehydrator sheet.  Tent another piece of foil over and dehydrate for about 4-5 hours until softened.  Remove from the dehydrator and set aside in a bowl.  To make the dressing, soak the chia seeds in the water until they soak all of it up (about 15 min).  Add them to a food processor, along with 1 1/2 cups of the rhubarb, 1 cup blueberries, vinegar, coconut nectar, olive oil, and sea salt to taste.  Process until smooth and well blended.  This dressing can be stored in the fridge for 2 weeks. 
To assemble the salad, place greens in a large bowl, along with the beets, blueberries and the rest of the rhubarb.  Toss together with enough dressing to coat (you will have extra) and place on four plates, top with the raw almonds and serve!
