    Warm Swiss Chard and Tomato Skillet Salad with Poached Eggs and Croutons

    Grab Swiss chard while still available at the market—this dark leafy green begins to wane (when locally grown) in the winter months. During harvest time, Swiss chard’s verdant leaves and crispy stems offer a delightfully refreshing alternative to lettuce-based salads when paired with juicy tomatoes, now also on their last legs.

    Storage

    Store Swiss chard in the crisper drawer of your refrigerator for up to 1 week. Store ripe tomatoes at room temperature for up to 1 week.

    Instead of bread croutons, use cooked chickpeas or quinoa for equal heartiness, texture, and flavour.
