This was an excellent veggie dish! First, I was a shallot short, but I added some red onion to my shallot and that turned out well. And I cut back on the oil, only finding half as much to be necessary. You didn't say what to do with the stalks of the chard (I assumed they didn't go in), but I didn't want to waste them so I steamed them for 15 minutes and added them with the rest of the chard leaves. And then you know me..I put in more feta than called for!!!! :) This turned out great! The pine nuts were a nice touch, too. Good work, Bergy! You sure you're not an Iron Chef? ;)

Wow - This was really good! I accidentally bought chard at the market (thought it was rhubarb!) and then searched for a recipe on Recipezaar.com so I could use it. I tried this recipe last week - made it exactly as written only added sun dried tomatoes. What a great dish - fabulous flavor! So, now I'm going to the market to purposefully buy chard. Thanks for sharing such a neat recipe!

Bergy: I have JUST one questions - WHERE can I find swiss chard?? I tried ALL of our local stores, and since I'd already bought all the ingredients to make this - I finally ended up substituting fresh kale for the swiss chard. I'm unsure if this was even an acceptable substitute, but it was GREAT! I will keep my eyes open for swiss chard...in the meantime, even DH raved about this - and he does NOT like cooked greens of ANY kind! Surprised me - he has already said I need to make it again! I used extra feta cheese (garlic/onion flavored), and of course a few extra pine nuts, since we love them as well! THANK you for sharing! This is a KEEPER!

excellent dish and very simple to make. I am not sure if my leaves were bigger and therefore took more time to cook, but I continued cooking until the leaves were wilted. Will, MOST DEFINATELY, do again, thanks so much for sharing.

This is such a great recipe. I frequently get chard as part of my veggie basket from a CSA and I am looking for creative ways to cook it. This was a huge hit with the family. The only substitution I made was I used olive oil because I had it on hand. This will definately be served again.

yum. first time eating swiss chard and it was straight from the garden....my hubs gobbled it up. We ate with roasted carrots and a small filet. Delicious.

This was really tasty Bergy! I used a couple cloves of garlic instead of onions because we ate it with onion-smothered steaks...I also added a bit of salt to the pine nuts while toasting them in the pan. Be sure to make EXTRA pine nuts because they are super when toasted...luckily I had made about five TBS because my wife and I ate at least three TBS while cooking the rest.

I have tons of Swiss Chard and Kale growing, looking for a way to use them. So I made this recipe with half Swiss Chard & half Kale, with olive instead of peanut oil - delicious

This was great & easy to make. Look forward to making more when my chard is ready to harvest in the garden. I used red onion (about 1/4cup) in place of scallions; also used reduced-fat feta and didn't alter flavor at all. Thanks!!

I tried swiss chard for the first time today using this recipe, and WOW! It was so good! It tasted so good I thought that it MUST be unhealthy, but it isn't so that's even better. I did think it was a little oily, but I'm sure that was my fault and not the recipe. I didn't have peanut oil and used olive oil instead, so that's what it could have been. GREAT recipe Bergy.
