Barb's Sauteed Swiss Chard

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Barb G.

We love Swiss chard. I have been making white swiss chard like this for years. My Daughter-in-laws Italian Mother use to make her swiss chard like this, that is how I came by this recipe. The white broad stem swiss chard works best.

Barb- I liked this recipe. As I have loads of chard still growing in the garden I am trying different recipes so it is not the same every day. I enjoyed this recipe in taste and the simplicity of it. Thank you. Chef1Mom another WNYer
