2 Tbsp. Walnuts, shelled (chopped)

Place the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat.

When the pan is hot reduce the heat to medium and add the walnuts.

Cook for about five minutes. Stir frequently and adjust the heat to keep the walnuts from burning but hot enough to lightly toast the nuts.

Recipe Notes

Chard in any format is one of my favorite of the greens. They are not quite as bitter as mustard greens but have a great texture.
