Bacon, garlic, and a little onion add flavor to this dish of Swiss chard. Swiss chard has long been one of my favorite vegetables, because it's a tasty and nutritious green vegetable, and it's so easy to grow.

Chopped Swiss chard, garlic, and Parmesan cheese are among the ingredients in this flavorful pasta dish. I like this Orecchiette along with a steak, oven fried chicken, or easy skillet cutlets, but it could also be a meatless main dish with the addition of pine nuts, white beans, or more cheese.

4. Chard With Bacon

5. Swiss Chard with Vinegar and Butter

Healthful as well as delicious, this chard is flavored with butter and a bit of vinegar, a natural combination in Southern cooking.

6. Swiss Chard and Caramelized Onions

The sweetness of these caramelized onions contrasts beautifully with the earthy flavor of the Swiss chard.
