Our rhubarb-strawberry sauce makes a delicious dessert on its own or a wonderful topping for toast. We love the flavor combination and look forward to whenever rhubarb is in season. This version takes just 22 minutes to make and requires only 6 ingredients, one of which is water. After making a simple syrup, stir in the fresh or frozen rhubarb, strawberries, and lemon juice, and the sauce is ready. We also call for store-bought angel food cake slices to significantly cut down on the prep time and make your life a whole lot easier. Just be sure to give them a quick toast before topping with the sauce.
