Swiss Chard With Bacon

Several years ago, we grew Swiss Chard in our garden.  It was fantastic fresh out of the garden and simply prepared.  Since then,  I have purchased it at the store occasionally.  Although it is good, it is not as good as eating it fresh from the garden.

I decided to change up the way I prepared it and add the flavors of one of my guilty pleasures…a wilted green salad with hot bacon dressing.  However, I wanted to cook the stems and the chard a little more than just wilting it with a hot dressing.

Here is the result:

 

Although there is some bacon, it is still a relatively healthy vitamin and mineral laden dish.  It can be fixed without the bacon for a healthier version.

  1. Just tried this recipe and cannot believe how good it is!!!!

    Been looking for a way to use a glut of chard and this is it. The whole family loved it!

    Will try it also now adding a little chili as part of Thai style dish.

    Well done and thank you

    • Darren,

      I am very glad you like it. It is now my family’s favorite way to eat chard. The chili sound like a very intriguing idea… I would love to know how it turns out.
