Raw Swiss Chard Salad – Make it Tonight!
My husband and I grew some Swiss Chard in our backyard this summer, so I came up with this simple Raw Swiss Chard Salad Recipe to enjoy a cool salad on those hot summer nights.
Swiss Chard is up there as one of the healthiest greens and it has a more mild flavor than kale or collards. Swiss Chard is a source of vitamin C, vitamin E, vitamin A (in the form of beta-carotene), manganese, zinc, and antioxidants.
This raw chard salad recipe is probably one of the easiest and most versatile recipes on this blog. It can be used as a side dish for any meal and it will last in a sealed container in the fridge for up to 5 days. If you want to use the Swiss Chard Salad as a main dish you can add some chopped avocado and or some steamed quinoa. You can use this salad recipe as a base and dress it up differently every single night!
Raw Swiss Chard Salad
3 cups finely sliced chard (with stems removed)
2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
1 tablespoon minced shallot
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
1/8 teaspoon salt
