Swiss chard, stemmed and chopped
extra virgin olive oil
salt and ground black pepper to taste
The chard made a beautiful presentation, and the pine nuts and raisins were a surprise, delicious addition. Definitely a keeper.
Almost too sweet unless paired with something salty (grilled fish).
An excellent and easy side dish. Can also accompany chicken, pork or be served with poached or fried eggs. The contrast of the sweet raisins and pine nuts with the chard (or spinach) is really delicious.
Delicious...made it just as the recipe called for and loved it.
Loved how simple, easy, healthy and tasteful this recipe is, I make it all the time!
I followed this recipe exactly - no changes, and it was perfect! Swiss chard is one of the simanim that my husband's family uses for Rosh Hashanah. It was my first year making it, and it was a huge success. The raisins add such a balanced sweetness to the nutty flavor, which couldn't be better for celebrating the Jewish New Year. My husband's sephardic family gobbled it all up the first night, and they were mightily impressed by this ashkenazi bride. Thanks for posting this. I plan to make it every year!
I used cashews instead of pine nuts (what I had on hand). Delish.
This recipe is simple and tasty. A great way to eat chard.
