Strawberry paired with rhubarb is the quintessential combination for spring. Tuck this slightly tart, lightly sweet dessert into a picnic basket or school lunch bucket. Bring it to your next cookout - or simply enjoy it, feet propped up, with some late afternoon tea.
The combination of creamy avocado with the crunch of crisp beets and the snap of green beans is a real palate pleaser. The colors are as startling and varied as the tastes.

Enjoy this colorful and healthy vegetable medley as a side or main dish, an appetizer, or sandwiched with goat cheese inside some crusty bread. The smoky, robust sauce has a little kick thanks to the crushed red pepper.
