Recipe Notes

The simplest side dishes are the best. I had this swiss chard in Spain last summer and it has it all – sweetness from the honey, savory garlic, bitter greens and just a touch of salt.

I like to put the oil in the pan on very low heat and add the garlic while I am making the rest of the meal. The warming oil will infuse with the garlic and you can increase the heat at the last minute to finish the dish.
