I love all leafy greens and Swiss chard is no exception. The colors of this rainbow chard were so striking, I just could not pass it up in the farmer's market. If you have always wondered how to prepare Swiss chard, it's simple. Just sauté the stalks a little longer than the leaves and add garlic and oil. Makes a great side dish.
