|Colorful Swiss Chard|
Prepare your Swiss chard by rinsing the leaves well and cutting about an inch from the stems. Discard this portion of the stems. The rest of the stems are tasty. Cut the stems from the leaves and chop into 1 inch pieces. Cut the leaves into 1/2 inch widths. It's as simple as that.
