This simple wintry dish can also be made with mustard greens or rapini. It will compliment almost any simple meat or fish dish.

Red Swiss Chard with Bacon, Garlic and White Wine

Serves 4

  • 1 lb. red (or green) Swiss chard, coarse stems removed, washed and drained
  • 1 Tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 slices bacon finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic thinly sliced
  • 1/3 cup white wine
  • 1/8 tsp. salt
  • pepper to taste


Coarsely chop the Swiss chard and reserve.

In a large pot, heat the vegetable oil over medium heat. Add the bacon and garlic and sauté until the bacon is crisp and the garlic is lightly browned. Add the Swiss chard, salt and white wine. Turn the heat to low, cover and cook until tender, approximately 10-12 minutes. Season with the pepper and serve.
