A light sweet and sour flavored Swiss chard with sweet cooked onion!

Serves 8

1/2 stick margarine

1 lg. red onion, peeled, cut in half from top to bottom, then crosswise into thin half rings

2 T. light brown sugar

2 bunches fresh Swiss chard, washed, and  bottom 2/3rds of stems removed and discarded

2 T. white vinegar


In large pot, over medium heat, melt margarine.

Add onion, and saute till soft and sweet.

Remove from heat, add brown sugar and stir till dissolved.

Add Swiss chard all at once, and fold and stir till coated with margarine, and onion is evenly distributed.

Return to heat and saute till wilted.

Add vinegar and as much salt as desired. Stir well; reduce heat to low, cover and cook for 35 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Remove cover, raise heat to medium and saute 5 minutes longer. Adjust for salt and serve.

Notes: A deliciously flavored Swiss chard. Be sure to saute onions till soft and sweet before adding chard.

Serve with mashed potatoes and salad or vegetables.
