Cheezy Garlicky Swiss Chard

This post is for my CSA friends who don't know what to do with their Swiss Chard....
Cheezy Garlicky Swiss Chard
In a bowl place:
1 bunch of swiss chard~(Chiffonade) follow the link for demonstration of this technique
& massage the chard to wilt and soften it.
2-3 small celery stalks diced
4-5 green onions chopped
1 container of grape tomatoes
6-7 radishes finely diced
(soaked pumpkins seeds make a nice addition to this salad)

Cheezy Garlicky Dressing
1/3 c. tahini
1/4 c. lemon juice
2-4 T. Bragg's Liquid Aminos
4-5 garlic cloves
2 stalks of celery~coarsely chopped
1/4-1/3 c. nutritional yeast
dash of cayenne pepper (optional)
  add water to thin if necesary
Blend in Vita-Mix or high powered blender

Pour this dressing over the salad and mix into it with your hands. Let it sit and marinate for 30 mins to meld the flavors together or it can be eaten right away.

You can also add swiss chard to salads, smoothies, juices or use it as a wrap instead of tortillas for avocado roll ups or in place of nori rolls.
For those who prefer to cook it.  It is good lightly steamed~adding onion/garlic/Bragg's or whatever your taste dictate
I encourage you to eat as many of your vegetables raw this season and see if you notice any improvements in your health.

Speak kind and encouraging words today...
the power of life and death are in the tongue....
you reap what you sow
what you plant will grow
