• 1 to 1 1/2 cups water
• 1/4 cup honey
• 4 stalks rhubarb, cut into thin slices
• 1/4 cup red wine vinegar
• Zest of 1 lemon

• Sea salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste

1. Heat water and honey over medium heat. When mixture begins to boil, add rhubarb and boil five minutes more, stirring often. Stir in vinegar and lemon zest, and cook 5 to 10 more minutes, until dressing is reduced by about half. Remove from heat, and let cool slightly.

2. Whisk olive oil into dressing. Season with salt and pepper. Serve warm or cold. Makes about 2 cups.
