Mediterranean Chard Black Berry Salad
Swiss chard (leaves and stems) can easily be incorporated into your meal planning. Leafy greens provide optimal macronutrients and calories to sustain a healthy regimen. Swiss chard yeilds vast amounts of minerals and nutrients, such as potassium, magnesium, and calcium. Alternatively, these leafy greens can be paired with your favorite spread of veggies and fruits! Not a moment too soon, as we are nearing the peak of berry season in Oregon, I decided to pair my leafy greens with black berries, and it was exquisite! This recipe offers a healthy assortment of crisp and naturally sweet flavors that kick starts your digestive juices.
Healthy Tip: Buy produce locally and help support your local farms. Do a little research and find U-pick Berry Farms, Farmers Markets, and Food Co-ops before the season takes off!
