Sauted Swiss Chard with Cranberries & Pumpkin Seeds

The first bunches of swiss chard have made it to the CSA Shares! Swiss chard is a dark leafy green with thick leaves and colorful stems that look like celery. Swiss chard is very easy to sauté, and a simple side of greens is great at any meal. This dish is just as easy, and has a colorful and tasty addition of cranberries and toasted pumpkin seeds. Swiss chard stems cook a little slower then the greens, so remove the stems and finely slice. Chop the greens into bite-size pieces. I toasted the pumpkin seeds in a dry skillet, it just takes a minute and soaked the cranberries to plump them up a bit.

Start the garlic over medium heat in olive oil, and then add the stems. When the stems are just about done, add the swiss chard, and a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar to the pan. Toss gently with tongs until the greens are wilted.
