Another Swiss Chard Recipe

Oct 27 006Yes, the Swiss Chard is still going strong! We had the 2 bunches from Tuesday to use, and I decided to find a tasty, simple salad recipe to try for Master Gardener Basic Training today. I did find and make a recipe, but unfortunately I was delinquent in my picture taking, so you’ll have to go to the sources to see a picture.

Here’s the recipe I tried: Swiss Chard Salad with Blue Cheese & Walnuts (It is actually a hybrid of two recipes, see here and here.)

A big bunch (maybe 2 bunches) fresh Swiss Chard, leaves and part of stems sliced
Some baby kale leaves, because I had them

1/4 cup olive oil
1/4 to 1/2 cup red wine vinegar
1/4 cup orange juice
2 tablespoons dark brown sugar
Craisins (I had orange flavored ones to use up.)
Walnuts
Salt and pepper
2-3 oz. of crumbled blue cheese.

It was pretty delicious!
