Chow down on this Swiss Chard-based salad to provide your body with anti-inflammatory nutrients and antioxidants!
Serves 2 as a main dish or 4 as a side
1/2 small white onion
3 cloves garlic
Leaves from 1 bunch chard
4 Roma tomatoes, diced
1 1/2 cups fresh corn kernels
1/4 cup pecan halves
1 cup seedless black grapes
Pinch of sea salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
Mince the onion and garlic. Smash them together a couple times with the back of a knife or with a mortar and pestle.
Wash the Swiss chard thoroughly, as it tends to be gritty, then slice it into ribbons by tightly bunching the leaves together and slicing them with a sharp, heavy knife. Place the chard in a salad bowl, add the remaining ingredients, and toss.
