  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 1/2 pounds Bright Lights chard, leaves reserved for another use, stems cut into 1/4-inch dice (2 cups)
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped sweet onion, such as Vidalia
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 1/2 cup golden raisins
  • 3 tablespoons cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1/4 cup chopped mint

How to make this recipe

  1. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet. Add the garlic and cook over moderate heat until softened. Add the chard stems and onion, season with salt and pepper and cook until the onion softens, about 4 minutes. Stir in the raisins, vinegar, honey and half of the mint. Cover and cook until the chard is crisp-tender, about 1 minute longer. Transfer to a bowl and let cool, then mix in the remaining mint.
