Sautéed Swiss Chard with Parmesan Cheese

To be honest, I did not think I was going to like this next recipe because I thought that Swiss chard was just another bitter green.  However, was I surprised!

Swiss chard is high in vitamins A, K and C.   Some consider it to be one of the healthiest vegetables.

Enjoy -- healthy AND tasty!   

             1 tablespoon olive oil (or enough to coat the pan)  {I removed the butter component}
             2 minced garlic cloves
             1/2 diced red onion
             1 small bunch Swiss chard coarsely chopped  (you may want to remove the ribs of the leaves and chop them separately)
             1/4 cup dry white wine
             ½ of a fresh squeezed lemon
             2 tablespoons freshly grated Parmesan cheese
             Sea salt to taste (optional)
Melt butter and olive oil together in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Stir in the garlic and onion, and cook for 30 seconds.  Add the chard and cook until wilted then add the white wine. Simmer until the stems begin to soften, about 5 minutes.  Stir in lemon juice and Parmesan cheese; season to taste with salt if needed.
