Simple Sauteed Swiss Chard

Simple Sauteed Swiss Chard


1 small bunch Swiss chard (about 8 ounces)
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 medium cloves garlic, minced
½ tablespoon balsamic vinegar
¼ teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper


Wash and dry the Swiss chard and trim about ½ inch off the stems. Separate the leaves from the stems and chop them separately, retaining both.

Heat the oil in a medium skillet over a medium heat. Add the chopped stems and cook, stirring occasionally, until they are tender, 3-4 minutes. Stir in the garlic and cook for 30 seconds more. Add the Swiss chard leaves and cook, stirring frequently, until they are tender and wilted, about 2 minutes. Remove from the heat; stir in the vinegar, salt and pepper and serve.
