What To Do With Swiss Chard?

I am so glad that so many people read my "ranting" blog post. I hope that the person it was mostly written for got a look at it too. Simetime's a girl just has to get it off her chest. Think I'm just tired of everyday being a full moon day!

On a much lighter note, last night, while trying to figure out what to do with a bunch of swiss chard I picked up at the Farmer's Market Saturday, I came up with a wonderful recipe and thought I'd share it with you all.

Sauteed Swiss Chard

1/2 lb. Fresh Swiss Chard

1 Medium Onion, course chopped

4 Garlic Cloves, sliced very thin

2 TBL Extra Virgin Olive Oil

1/2 tsp. salt

Dash of Sea Salt

Fresh Ground Pepper to Taste

A Very Light, High Quality Extra Virgin Olive Oil - a finishing oil

In a large skillet, sautee the onion and garlic until tender. Remove from burner to stop cooking. At the same time blanch the chard, for 10 minutes, in enough water to cover and add the 1/2 tsp. of salt. Drain off water immediately. Add the chard to the onions and garlic and heat covered until it steams. Add salt and pepper. To serve, place on a plate and drizzle with the high quality extra virgin olive oil.

I served it with fresh grilled Snapper. It was wonderful!

Hopefully, you all will try this and love it as much as we did. By the way, I had the left overs this morning. It made a perfect breakfast.
