  • 6 cloves garlic, sliced
  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 16 cups (packed) stemmed and roughly chopped swiss chard (about 5 lg bunches)

  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt

1. Heat garlic and oil in large skillet over medium low heat until garlic begins to turn golden, about 3 minutes. Transfer mixture to small bowl and set aside.
