I made this last night with our first swiss chard from the garden. I loved the combination of the chard and the walnuts. Next time, I'll probably use bacon instead of pancetta since it was $5.99 for 4 ounces!
Chard with Shallots, Pancetta & Walnuts
For this simple sautéed chard, flavored with rich-tasting pancetta and walnuts, we prefer the milder taste of green chard.
4 Reviews for Chard with Shallots, Pancetta & Walnuts
I used tofu bacon because we had some extra for my vegetarian son; it would be better with pancetta (but less healthful). The shallots gave it a sweet taste.
I used 1/3 cup of chopped walnuts, because we love the crunch of nuts in recipes like this. I thought it was a good prep for chard. Next time I think I'll use speck, instead of the pancetta for a smokier flavor.
I'd use a teaspoon instead of a tablespoon of lemon juice -- as-is, the lemon overtakes all of the other flavors. It seems to have potential, but it's hard to tell with such an overwhelming lemon flavor.
