Strawberry and Rhubarb Crumble

Recipe by alligirl

The crumble is the British version of the American crisp. This one features the classic combination of tart rhubarb and sweet strawberries, topped with a crunchy oat-and-hazelnut streusel. A scoop of ice cream is the perfect finishing touch. Originally by Tamasin Day-Lewis and taken from Bon Appetit - May 2010 for ZWT.

As a kid I used to love eating stalks of rhubarb raw, but never seemed to care for the strawberry/rhubarb pies that came my way! This dessert, however, is absolutely delicious! We really enjoyed the berry & 'barb combo, & I'll be making this again, for sure! Thanks for sharing the recipe! [Tagged & made in Please Review My Recipe]
