Swiss Chard Salad with Apples and Pecans

I love my super food greens! As you know kale is a big part of my diet – so are collard greens. Well, lately I have discovered another super green that I can’t be without. Introducing Swiss Chard! That’s right, Swiss Chard!

Swiss Chard is probably one of the most vitamin and mineral rich super greens you can eat! I can’t even begin to tell you how healthy chard is! You can read more about it here.

Well, if you want a simple, but delicious way to consumer more chard, try my salad. You only need a few ingredients, and it is super yummo! Plus super energizing too! Try it for yourself.

Ingredients:
1 large bunch (about 6-8 leaves) fresh white Swiss Chard
1-2 handfuls fresh herb salad mix
1 handful fresh sprouts or micro herbs
2 large apples (mixed variety)
1/2 cup raisins
1/2 cup raw pecan pieces
drizzle hemp oil
drizzle balsamic vinegar

Preparation:
Rinse chard leaves, and trim off ends. Chop leaves and add to a large bowl. Core and seed apples. Cut into small slices and add to bowl. Add herb lettuce, micro herbs, raisins and pecans. Toss well. Drizzle hemp oil and balsamic vinegar, toss again until well combine. Ready to serve. Makes 2-4 servings depending upon how much you like to eat! =)
