Swiss Chard With Currants and Feta

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Ames Shaps

I thought after using this site for a while that I'd post one of my favorite recipes. It's adapted from Gourmet Magazine, and it's perfect for winter holidays (great colors!) I say it serves 2-4, but I often eat it all by myself!

I'm afraid the combination of tastes didn't appeal to me. But it's very pretty. :-)
