      This was a nice, easy, and flavorful way to prepare some lovely Swiss chard and mustard greens that I got fresh from the garden. I did use pepper (since I love it on everything). I do think the key to making this is to not overcook your greens. Thanks for sharing this. Made for ZWT6 by a RedHot Renegade.

      We love horta! (this is what greens are called here) and this is really how we make them. Your greens have to be very fresh and lightly-boiiled so all the nutrients don't boil away. Didn't add the pepper - we don't put pepper on our salads. Thanks.
