This is a great vegetable side with any kind of meat or fish. I've even served it with pasta.


  • 1 = lbs Swiss chard
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil, extra virgin preferably
  • 3 cloves minced garlic
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 dozen Kalamata olives, chopped


Wash the chard, cut away the stems and chop the leaves. In large skillet or Dutch oven, heat the olive oil. Add garlic and red pepper flakes- saute for one minute. Add the chard, saute, turning frequently, the chard. Stir in lemon juice and olives, heat through.

Serves 6.
