This unique grain salad highlights a bevy of bright produce, including one of our favorite spring crops: rhubarb. We’re slicing up the stalk and pickling it with a bit of honey and vinegar for delicious pops of sweet, tart flavor. Sautéed radishes, crunchy celery, and creamy avocado add plenty of exciting flavors and textures to the salad—all garnished with walnuts toasted with a blend of brown sugar, cayenne, cumin, and more.
