Don’t toss those gorgeous stems! Instead, thinly slice and give them a head start in the pan before adding the leaves. Swiss chard and rainbow chard actually have a lot of natural sodium; you’ll find that just a small amount of salt is all you need.

How to Make It

Thinly slice chard stems. Coarsely chop chard leaves. Heat oil in a skillet over medium-high. Add chard stems and red onion to pan; cook 5 minutes or until just tender, stirring occasionally. Add chard leaves, pepper, and salt; cook 4 minutes, stirring frequently. Remove pan from heat. Sprinkle pine nuts and vinegar over pan; toss to combine.
