Swiss Chard

I found this lovely swiss chard at Chino farms the other day. It was so pretty that it had to come home with me. It stayed nice and healthy in a jar of water for several days until I decided on how I was going to serve it. It is best served as a side dish. This is a simple way to prepare it. It adds color and nutrition to your plate.

2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
4 cloves garlic, minced
1 bunch Swiss chard, stalks discarded, leaves cut into wide ribbons
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
salt and pepper to taste

Heat the olive oil on a large skillet over medium heat. Stir in the garlic and cook until tender and aromatic, about 2 minutes. Add the Swiss chard and balsamic vinegar; cook and stir until the chard is wilted and tender, about 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper and serve. Simple, quick and nutritious.
