  • 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! Read More

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

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! Read More

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. Read More

I'm not really fond of swiss chard and was looking for a new preparation. This is so simple yet that touch of lime made a difference. My husband really liked it. Read More

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. Read More
