Bright Lights Swiss Chard is as nutritious as it is beautiful. The red veins and vibrant green leaves might lead you to believe it's just a pretty garnish, but you'd be missing out if you didn't give this powerhouse green a try! Its taste has been compared to something between beetroot greens and spinach, with hints of both earthiness and bitterness. Much more mild than spinach or kale, it makes the perfect green for beefing up nutrients without the pungent taste of most greens. Use it in casseroles and soups to add depth, saute it on its own, or finally chop for a crisp and refreshing salad.
It is closely related to beets and spinach, with the leaves that are edible and taste great raw as baby greens or grown up to be a hearty green that can be sauteed into a tasty side dish. Add them to any dish to bring vibrant color and a greater depth of flavor.
