Swiss Chard with Pine Nuts and Raisins

swiss chard recipe

I love Swiss chard, especially the rainbow variety. The multicolored rainbow chard is pleasing on the plate and to the palate. Chard is an antioxidant powerhouse and is loaded with fiber, and vitamins K, C and A. You will also benefit from the magnesium, potassium and iron packed in this leafy green member of the thistle family. The slightly bitter chard is a favorite in Mediterranean countries and has become increasingly popular in local groceries. In our area it is easily found at the farmer’s markets in the fall and during our mild cool winters. This is a quick and easy recipe to use as a side to accompany fish or meats or eat just as is!
