Author Notes: This is my favorite way to prepare winter greens.The raisin and sugar add a touch of sweetness to the vegetables.The vinegar gives it a bite, and the nuts add some crunch.I have used Kale with this recipe and it works well.Gerlinde de Broekert

Directions

  1. Wash chard, tear leaves from the stems and cut leaves into bite-sized pieces. Discard the stems.
  2. In a large frying pan, sauté the onions in olive oil for 5 minutes, add garlic and sauté for one more minute.
  3. Mix vinegar, sugar and raisins in a bowl and add to the onion mixture. Add the chard, put a lid on the pan and cook for 2 to 3 minutes. I pronounce it done when the chard starts to change colors.
