  1. Chop the chard stems into 1/2-inch pieces. Stack the chard leaves, roll them tightly into a cylinder, and chop into 1/2-inch strips; chop the strips into halves.
  2. Heat about half the olive oil in a large non-stick skillet over medium heat. Cook chopped chard stems in hot oil until hot, about 1 minute. Stir the chard leaves with the stems; cook and stir together 1 minutes more. Drizzle remaining olive oil over the mixture and stir to coat. Continue cooking and stirring until the leaves are nearly wilted, 4 to 5 minutes. Remove from heat and immediately sprinkle kosher salt and squeeze lime half over the chard. Stir to season evenly.

i made this first with a small vegetable broth then added a bit of olive oil and topped it with the lime juice and salt. i would def make it again esp with all the chard i get from my CSA share.

Nice cure for cabin fever-fresh greens and one's favorite seed catalog. I didn't add a thing to the recipe. The lime, salt, and oil are plenty.

A little bland. I still like lemon better with chard. Would make again with some garlic, onion, and lemon with the lime.

Instead of kosher salt, subbed in lemon pepper salt--went really well with the lime and lemon juice. Also added a teaspoonful of minced garlic and a bit of chili powder for a kick. Original reci...

I added fresh garlic. Go easy on the salt. Tasty!
