    From The Performance Paleo Cookbook

    Toasty walnuts, lemon and herbs add flavor to this humble green

    Chard is such a versatile leafy green, and it’s great served both raw and cooked. It’s particularly rich in vitamin A and lots of antioxidants. The warm walnut dressing wilts the chard just a bit when you pour it over the greens.

    If you’re going to prep the salad ahead of time, warm the dressing back up before you add it to the chard. Can’t find chard? Spinach will work just fine!

      1. It’s a hearty yet delicate green very accommodating in flavor. I think the colors of food are always my favorite part. 🙂

      1. Thanks Webly! And I love that you said wicked easy…I’m from Mass. so that’s in my vernacular 😉 I appreciate that you stopped by!

    1. This recipe sounds great. I am another one who has never eaten chard raw, but would be willing to try it, perhaps mixed with spinach to start? (I have to figure out how to get my husband to eat it, since we extremely rarely eat meals apart.)

      1. Hi Nancy,

        Are you allergic to any other nuts or just walnut? Pistachios or almonds would be tasty. If you can’t do those then sunflower and toasted pepita seeds would be tasty. 🙂

    2. This is really good! I used pecans in place of the walnuts and added feta cheese (which I know is not technically paleo, but was still good). Thanks for sharing! This was the first time I’ve eaten chard uncooked as a salad. I will be making this again! 🙂
