    Buster's friend's Note:

    Swiss chard is a delicious easy to grow green that is super beautiful to boot - the stalks can be pearly white, brilliant red or even vivid yellow. This is a fast & tasty way to prepare the swiss chard cranking out in the garden. I can make a mea of it with a couple of poached eggs & a little grated Parmesan/Romano cheese.

      This was really good. I love stir fried greens, so tasty. I would increase the capers, garlic and balsamic so that you could really taste those flavors too.

      Fast, tasty, *and* doesn't require me to forgo the yummy chard stalks! I've made this twice in the past week it is so good! The second time, I doubled the amount of capers (and remembered to mash them!) and it was even tastier. Served over beans and rice for a hearty and healthy vegetarian meal. Thanks!
