WHO: Lizthechef is a long-time Food52-er who lives and cooks in San Diego. WHAT: Sautéed greens with some real personality. HOW: Rib, chop, sauté, simmer, drizzle. WHY WE LOVE IT: Where other chard dishes can be either lifeless or heavy, this one strikes that wonderful middle balance: it's complex, bright, and has enough going on to make you come back to it, bite after bite.

...And watch them shrink down. When they do, that's your cue to add the raisins.
