Sauteed Rainbow Chard with Dried Cranberries

This is a great side dish for any fall/winter night dinner.  It’s also a great, easy side dish to add some greens for a holiday dinner, be it Thanksgiving, Christmas, or New Year’s.  The deep green of the chard leaves with the dried cranberries offer a festive look.  The tiny, sweet, tangy jewel-like cranberries stud the deep, velvety green chard leaves.  If you are making it for a holiday dinner, you could make the dish a day ahead and reheat it gently on the stove just before serving.

Herb Stuffing with Sage, Leeks, and Chard

Here’s a simple and tasty stuffing to include in your Thanksgiving menu.  Feel free to leave out the chard stems if you don’t have them.  I had some leftover from a side of Sautéed Rainbow Chard.  The chard stems add a light sweetness, and are a great way to use them (rather than discarding them), but it’s not necessary.
