Rainbow Chard with Bacon Jam and Potatoes Recipe

I love rainbow chard. it's not just beautiful, but healthy as well. And so easy to cook. This makes a wonderful side. Not enough greens to take over the vegetable on the plate, but a more colorful and healthy starch than just potatoes alone.


1. Cook potatoes in boiling water until al dente - about 15 to 20 minutes. Chop in 1/2 to 1 inch cubes, and toss in a bowl with bacon jam. Place potatoes on a baking sheet and broil them quickly to brown the outsides. 1-2 minutes.

2. Saute chard in olive oil over medium heat until wilted - about 7 to 10 minutes. Add balsamic and cook a little longer until liquid has turned thick. Add chard to potatoes, and toss. Finish with herbed salt and serve.
