  1. Chop the chard stems into 1/2-inch pieces. Stack the chard leaves, roll them tightly into a cylinder, and chop into 1/2-inch strips; chop the strips into halves.
  2. Heat about half the olive oil in a large non-stick skillet over medium heat. Cook chopped chard stems in hot oil until hot, about 1 minute. Stir the chard leaves with the stems; cook and stir together 1 minutes more. Drizzle remaining olive oil over the mixture and stir to coat. Continue cooking and stirring until the leaves are nearly wilted, 4 to 5 minutes. Remove from heat and immediately sprinkle kosher salt and squeeze lime half over the chard. Stir to season evenly.

While I did add some fresh minced garlic because that's what I'm used to, I did not squeeze the fresh lime over my portion. Hubs did and said I should have. He said I missed out because it gave it a subtle but delicious flavor!

A little bland. I still like lemon better with chard. Would make again with some garlic, onion, and lemon with the lime.

Delicious. A great way to use fresh greens at its peak . I also added 1/2 tsp minced garlic and a bit of onion. The lime really does add some zing!

This was actually pretty good. We have been looking for something to do with all the Chard we have growing in our garden. Chard is usually too bitter for me, but this recipe made it quite good, without any of the bitter.

i made this first with a small vegetable broth then added a bit of olive oil and topped it with the lime juice and salt. i would def make it again esp with all the chard i get from my CSA share.

Nice cure for cabin fever-fresh greens and one's favorite seed catalog. I didn't add a thing to the recipe. The lime, salt, and oil are plenty.

Instead of kosher salt, subbed in lemon pepper salt--went really well with the lime and lemon juice. Also added a teaspoonful of minced garlic and a bit of chili powder for a kick. Original recipe is a great way to do up leafy veg, just some personal preferences. Will make again!
