This is a great way to use swiss chard and a great alternative to the traditional tzatziki. I found this recipe at Simply Recipes.

Thanks for this recipe! I have lots of chard and this was a delicious way to use it--and so easy, too.This is a keeper.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Fill half of a 2 quart saucepan with water and bring to a boil. Add chopped chard leaves and cook for about 3-5 minutes or until tender. Strain the chard to remove all excess hot water once cooked. Place chard in a bowl of ice water.
  2. In a bowl, grind the garlic and salt into a paste using the back of a sturdy spoon.
  3. Place the yogurt, chard, garlic/salt paste, olive oil, lemon juice, and a small dash of cayenne pepper into a medium sized bowl.
  4. Serve with bread, pita, crackers, latkes, or almost anything else.
