This was the first time I've ever cooked rhubarb. I planted one rhubarb in my garden last year and now I can finally enjoy some of it. It's great and it goes perfectly with strawberries. Tasty poetry in every bite, trust me. 

Sweet and sour flavors mixed perfectly into a wonderful dessert, just in time to celebrate the beginning of summer. Rhubarb and Strawberry Pie

If you're in a hurry, you can buy the dough from the supermarket, but if you wish to have a great pie, make yourself the dough from 400 grams of flour, 200 grams of butter, 1 tablespoon of sugar, 1 teaspoon of salt, and 8 tablespoons of iced water. Start by mixing the flour with butter at room temperature, sugar and salt, then gradually add the iced water to obtain a compact dough. Keep the dough in the fridge for one hour before using it.

I added some frozen blue berries on top, because I had them in the freezer, but they're not absolutely necessary. 
Please, leave a hart and a comment if you like my recipe. And don't forget to share the recipe with your friends :)
