  • 1 bunch chard (10 to 12 large leaves)
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/4 cup chopped hazelnuts
  • 2 tart apples, such as Pink Lady or Honeycrisp, cored and chopped
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar, or more to taste
  • Salt and pepper, to taste


Remove center stems from chard leaves and slice into thin slices to be added to the pan. Chop chard leaves into large pieces (about 2-inch squares).

Heat oil in a large sauté pan over medium heat and add hazelnuts. Cook for about 1 minute to toast. Add apples and cook for 1 minute more. Toss in chard and stem pieces and stir-fry until heated through and chard takes on a bright jade color. (You may need to add a few teaspoons of water or apple cider if the pan is too dry.) Season with balsamic vinegar, salt and pepper.
