Italian-style swiss chard

Yield: 8 servings

Measure Ingredient
3 pounds Swiss chard
2 tablespoons Extra-virgin olive oil
1½ tablespoon Minced or pressed garlic
6 Chopped anchovies
3 tablespoons Balsamic vinegar
Salt & pepper

Trim stem ends of chard. Thinly slice stems crosswise up to base of leaves; set slices aside. Reserve a few whole leaves to line serving dish; coarsely chop remining leaves.

In a 6 to 8 quart pan over medium-high heat, stir oil, garlic and anchovies until garlic is slightly softened, about 2 minutes. Add chard stems; stir until softened, about 2 minutes. Stir in chopped leaves (part at a time if pan if full), cover, and cook until wilted, about 4 minutes. Mix in vinegar; season to taste with salt & pepper.

Garnish a serving dish with reserved chard leaves; spoon greens along side. From Sunset Magazine, Nov '94.
