      This is the first year we have grown Chard, so I have been a little unsure how to use it. I have eaten it several times but have never cooked it myself. I looked through all the recipes for Swiss Chard on this site and picked this one. I am sure glad I did. We love it and will be using it a lot from now on. It's simple, easy to remember and the best Chard I have ever eaten. I did add extra garlic, red pepper and I used bottled lemon juice. I was very tasty. Thanks so much for this great recipe.

      Wow! I usually don't go too crazy about veggies....but this was so good! The first time I tried Swiss chard, my DH was not too keen about it (I didn't quite get it cooked enough). This recipe was the deciding or dislike?!?! Well, you sold him (and me, of course!!) The lemon really makes the dish shine through!! Kudos on a great find and thanks for passing it on!!

      Very tasty, I really like the lemon flavor with the chard. I left out the garlic and red pepper flakes, and added some black pepper instead. Cooking time was pretty much right on, though I think I'll start the chopped up ribs a tiny bit earlier than the rest next time (was good as is, but I think I'd like them just a little softer)
