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. Add a fried egg and slice of bread and you have a meal. —Sunnycovechef

In This Recipe
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.
