Personal Notes:
Swiss chard is a member of the greens family. Swiss chard is related to the beet. It's earthy & slightly sweet & is also packed w/nutrients. Though the leafy part is always green, the wide, flat stalk comes in a variety of hues--from white to bright yellow, orange & red. Swiss chard is easy to cook. It can be baked into a pie or sauteed with olive oil & spices.
