      I don't want to rate this because I didn't taste it, but the guests that did found this bitter. The puff pastry was difficult to work with, in order to work with it easily, spray a wax paper with cooking spray so it doesn't stick and try to keep it cold until you create the braid. I also had trouble with my measurements of greens, I wasn't calculating properly, and used only kale and collard greens. I would recommend trying spinach and kale, perhaps that would reduce the bitterness. Thanks for sharing anyway, Derf.

      Just look at the appearance of this strudel it is wonderful. I wish I could say I made it but it was Derf that made it as a part of a fabulous luncheon that I had with her, When you cut into it and look at the texture of the Swiss Chard it is wonderful..Great recipe for a meatless meal - this recipe can be a meal by itself or serve with a bit of rice on the side and a nice green salad . Thanks Derf for your cullinary skills and this wonderful recipe
