Sautéed Chard with Almonds and Dried ApricotsLisa Turner
- Serves: 4 people
Bits of apricots and nuts add sweetness and crunch. Prep tip: For a spicier version of this easy dish, substitute escarole for the chard and add red pepper flakes. Serving tip: Serve alongside salmon, with a side of steamed cauliflower dressed with olive oil and fresh basil.
- Remove stems from chard. Chop stems into 3/4-inch pieces. Stack leaves and cut crosswise, about 1/2 inch wide.
- In a large skillet, heat oil over medium-high. Add onion and chard stems and sauté for 2–3 minutes, until just tender. Add chard leaves. Using tongs, turn greens to coat with oil. Sprinkle with sea salt.
- Add garlic and apricots. Sauté for 3–5 minutes, until chard is bright green and just tender. Transfer greens to a serving dish. Sprinkle with toasted almonds and serve.
