From the Test Kitchen

This recipe gives special treatment to one of our favorite springtime ingredients: rhubarb. Though it’s most famous for its appearance in pies, rhubarb makes for a great addition to salads, too. We’re shaving the crimson stalks into beautiful, thin ribbons and pickling them with red wine vinegar. This highlights their natural tartness (and balances it with a bit of sweetness), perfectly accenting the tarragon-infused chicken.
