If you grow greens in your garden, or if you’ve purchased some for salad and they are starting to wilt, this recipe is perfect. Easy, simple, healthy and delicious. Even if my chard has gone to seed or gotten woody, I pick off the tender leaves. They will be bitter, but the garlic and olive oil turn garden greens fit for the compost pile into something divine.
