Swiss chard

I wish I had a photo to go along with this post! 

I harvested lots of chard from the mountain beds earlier in the week (they were starting to bolt).

We had part of it (the harvest) cooked a couple of days ago, but I included the final harvest in a chard salad to take to a local foods potluck this evening.  Yum. 

I'd not made a fresh chard salad before, amazingly, but chard (chopped finely) is mild in taste, and with some vinaigrette, onions, chives, chive flowers, and some diced purple sweet potatoes -- it made a lovely, colorful, and delicious dish.

  1. I love this! I have some rainbow chard and chive blossoms in the garden right now...will add them to my salad tonight.

Please share your thoughts with me. I always enjoy hearing from fellow gardeners and nature observers of all sorts, as well as whomever else drops by.
