This rhubarb strawberry tart is a great summer dessert. It can be made as a classic tart or as galette style rustic tart. I love making sweet tarts year-round, but make them more frequently during the late spring to early fall season. It’s a great way to incorporate all the yummy summer fruits into an easy to make dessert. It’s no secret that rhubarb and strawberries are a great combination, the tartness of the rhubarb goes perfectly with the sweetness of the strawberry. We didn’t have rhubarb when I was growing up in Ecuador; and if you live in a place where it isn’t available you can also make this tart with just strawberries. You can also replace the rhubarb with tart green apples or pretty much any other fruit.
I usually make my own dough for sweet tarts, it’s very easy to make in the food processor, and it is a little bit of work to roll it out, but it’s worth it. Of course, if you’re in a hurry and don’t have time to make the dough from scratch then you can always use store bought tart dough. You can make this strawberry rhubarb tart in a traditional tart mold or also form a rustic style tart or galette and bake it on a baking sheet or flat baking pan.
I also love preparing dessert empanadas using fruit (as you might already know) and already posted a rhubarb strawberry empanada recipe. But it can be time consuming to make each empanada, and making a tart or pie instead is really the same as making a very large empanada that everyone can share. You can serve the rhubarb strawberry tart alone or with vanilla ice cream. It also goes great with honey crème fraiche sauce.
