  • Heat the olive oil in a skillet over medium-low heat. Cook the garlic in the oil until just fragrant, about 1 minute. Add the Swiss chard to the garlic and cook until wilted, 3 to 5 minutes; transfer the chard and garlic to a bowl, reserving any liquid in the skillet and returning it to the heat.

Absolutely delicious! I've just discovered swiss chard and am looking for more recipes. This one is tops! Oh I used feta rather than blue....it's just what I had in the house. Read More

I was looking for recipes to help me get some potassium into my diet since I recently deduced that I am severely lacking in that macromineral; lo-and-behold I stumbled across this delicious recipe! So yummy and so nutritious! I love that it contains the top 2 most potassium-rich foods but I REALLY love how delicious it is! I made one change because of personal preference substituting Gorgonzola for blue cheese because blue cheese gives me the heebie jeebies! Read More

This recipe is great for the south beach diet. I added spiced toasted pecans and served warm. The only disappointment I had was that the onions got a little lost. Otherwise a great recipe. Read More

OK I made modifications but it was definitely 5-star! I used about 2 tablespoons of white wine vinegar instead of the balsamic. Balsamic can be intense and I just didn't want that flavor tonight. Also I'm not a bleu cheese fan so I crumbled the same amount of the chipotle cheddar I had on hand. It didn't have too much of a vinegar bite with white wine vinegar and the chipotle added some nice heat. Yum-yum-'lish! Read More

I almost didn't want to rate this b/c I didn't have blue cheese and had to use parm. Still the recipe is solid and I think with blue cheese it would have had that extra oomph. Nuts would have been a nice addition too. Read More
