View Full Version : A good swiss chard recipe?
06-01-2006, 04:21 PM
Does anyone have a good recipe using swiss chard? I have a bunch and usually juice it, but would like to make use it in a recipe. None of my raw recipe books have one in it. I don't know if Alissa's does because it hasn't arrived in the mail yet.
I sure would appreciate any good ideas... :D

This will work nicely with Chard I used it with Chard and Kale
I do not use the avocado in this recipe. I save the avocado for a different treat and feel that with olive oil I don't need it, as it does not add any flavor to it. Enjoy
Marinated Kale Salad
(From Elaina's Pure Joy Kitchen Recipe Book)
A tender and delicious mix of kale and avocado with a kickin' marinade. If you've wondered about raw kale, go for it, it's better than you can imagine! It's a big hit with kids and is loaded with calcium.
- 1 bunch fresh dinosaur or red Russian kale, stems removed and ripped into bite sized pieces
- 1/4 large red onion, very thinly sliced
- 1 medium green or yellow zucchini, julienned or 5 shitake mushrooms, thinly sliced.
- 2 medium avocados, chunked (add after you massage the salad)
- 3/4 cup olive or flax oil
- 1/2 cup lemon juice
- 1 tsp. Celtic sea salt
- 1/8 tsp. cayenne pepper (add after massaging the salad)
- 1 clove garlic, crushed
Pour the first 3 ingredients of the marinade right onto the torn kale leaves. Use your hands to massage and squeeze the kale. This will work the salt and lemon in and help to make the kale tender. Continue to knead the salad until it begins to soften.
Add the avocado and cayenne pepper and garlic if you like. Mix well and serve.
This salad gets better as it sits. It will last for 3 or 4 days in the refrigerator.

I've been on a 60 day juice fast, and swiss chard has been one of my favorite additions in my green drinks. The chard, along with coconut water, spinach, celery, some jerusalem artichoke, and apples has been one of my favorite combinations through the fast, though I like it so much that I'll continue to use it as continuing forward raw too. :)
