  1. Wash the Swiss chard and cut into 1 inch strips. Separate the thick and tough stalk sections from the upper leafy strips.
  2. Bring the water and 1 tablespoon of salt to a boil in a large saucepan.
  3. Cook the stalk sections in the salted boiling water for 2 minutes. Stir in the leafy strips and cook until the leaves are wilted and the stalks are fork tender, about 6 minutes. Drain and set aside.
  4. Heat the olive oil, garlic, and red pepper flakes in a large skillet over medium heat until aromatic, about 3 minutes. Add the drained Swiss chard, cook and stir for 2 minutes; season with salt to taste.

I'm sorry to be critical of someone else's review - and I haven't, yet made this dish but - 'tonimg' - the recipe says, "Salt to taste" so how can you blame the author of the recipe if you chose...

AWESOME!! love this recipe and make it all the time now; I didn't pre-boil the chard and it still turned out tender without being soggy

This was delicious, but man, does it reduce down! A whole bunch amounted to about a cup's worth wilted, at most, but it was very tasty, and I'll be sure to use more chard next time. I discarde...

This was delicious! I actually had to make more because my boyfriend liked it so much he wouldn't give it back!
