Spring is here when the rhubarb is ready to pick. Serve this as a dessert sauce or serve it over grilled chicken or pork. It is a calorie bargain when you make it with Splenda.

3 cups rhubarb, diced 3/4 cup Splenda or sugar 1/2 cup orange juice 1 tablespoon tapioca

In a medium saucepan, combine all ingredients. Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until mixture comes to a boil. Cook for 3 - 4 minutes or until rhubarb is tender. Serve warm sauce over grilled chicken or pork tenderloin. Store any left-over sauce in the refrigerator.

Serves 4
