RECIPE

4a. SWISS CHARD SALAD–(Recipe by Hilah cooking at hilahcooling.com) Serves 4

Swiss chard can easily be ribbon cut and added to any salad, but the beauty of this recipe is the chard is softened by letting it sit for 15-20 minutes–this breaks down the tougher fibers in the leaves. Excellent flavor–recipe is a keeper to make over and over.

Ingredients:

3 cups chopped Swiss Chard

4 t. olive oil

2 t. red wine vinegar or cider vinegar

2 t. Lemon juice

2 t. maple syrup

Salt and pepper, a couple of shakes each

1 c. diced cucumber

1 small beet, sliced thinly and slices cut into quarters (raw)

½ c. golden raisins or dried cranberries

¼ c. toasted sunflower seeds

Directions:

Cut the stems out of the chard and put them back in the refrigerator for making hot dog stir-fry later. (LOL) Stack the chard leaves and roll them into a tight cylinder. Cut the cylinder into ¼” slices, giving you long chard ribbons. That’s called a chiffonade!
Put chard into a large bowl and add oil, vinegar, lemon juice, maple syrup, salt and pepper, and toss to coat the chard.
Add everything else and toss.
Let it sit 15-30 minutes to get the chard leaves softened. Eat it and be the healthiest person you know.
