Wilted Greens With Garlic and Balsamic Vinegar

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by Irmgard

This simple but delicious side dish can be made with almost any kind of green but my personal favourite is red-veined Swiss chard as the green and red make such a pretty presentation. From Williams-Sonoma Italian Favourites.

Never had swiss chard before, but rcv'd it in the weekly basket of co-op produce. This is the first recipe that came up on my search, so I tried it. Loved the balsamic vinegar but next time would add another clove of garlic.
