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.

  1. Cut the greens into strips 1 inch wide.

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.

This is an excellent, basic recipe for Swiss Chard. Anyone who likes Chard will enjoy this one and it couldn't be easier to make.
