With spring comes the welcome return of rhubarb. Though often prepared as a dessert, it's an unexpected, and pleasant, addition to savory dishes as well. When using rhubarb, be careful of the leaves on top; they contain toxic substances, but you'll find most stores usually remove them before they're sold. Try to find long, firm stalks to ensure freshness.
