Incredibly yummy- slightly spicy with a bit of lemon zip. This is the MOST delicious swiss chard recipe EVER! -I promise. (Adapted from a recipe from Bon Appetit)

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.
