Many of our members asked about recipes for Swiss chard. In yesterday's post, I offered one of our favorites. But, I thought I would post a few more ideas for chard and the kale. Enjoy!
Spicy Swiss Chard:
Greens, Polenta, and Eggs - I found this amount of balsamic vinegar to be a bit too pungent for me, and I would recommend backing off of it a little. But, this dish is a staple on our table.
Kale Salad - there are a lot of recipes out there for kale salad. This is our own version.
a few leaves of kale
a few tablespoons of Blackberry Splash vinaigrette*
Gorgonzola cheese (you can substitute feta if you prefer the flavor)
wash, pat dry, and tear kale leaves. Fill individual bowls to desired level with kale leaves. Slice pears and place desired amount on top of the kale. Sprinkle bowls with Gorgonzola cheese. Drizzle salad with vinaigrette.
* Blackberry Splash happens to be sold at Buppert's and is made by McCutcheon's. You can probably use any fruity dressing; this just happens to be our favorite as it is a little thicker and richer than other fruity dressings we've tried.
