Braised Chard With Lots of Garlic
Braising chard gives it a mellow flavor that can be enhanced with garlic and a squeeze of fresh lemon. Sided with grilled salmon, this recipe is a delicious taste of summer’s local flavor.
Wash greens thoroughly by rinsing in lots of lukewarm water. Drain and chop greens into 3-inch pieces.
Heat oil in a large skillet. Sauté garlic for 2 minutes. Add greens to skillet. (They do not have to be dried off, as the water will evaporate during cooking.) Cover and cook over medium heat for 4 to 5 minutes, stirring once in a while to coat all the greens with garlic and oil.
Sprinkle with salt and serve with lemon wedges.
