Local Bounty: Swiss Chard

You would think that a food that is so pretty and colorful would taste good, but I wasn't too impressed with this past week's local bounty. Maybe it was the way that I prepared the Swiss Chard (sauteed with olive oil, salt, and pepper), but let's just say it was not my favorite type of green.


  1. I've never tried this before. Does it taste anything like cabbage.. or more lettucy? Or neither?

  2. It actually tastes a lot like mustard greens minus the mustardy taste, if that makes sense. In a slight way it has a spinachy texture.
