Wilted Chard Salad with Walnuts and Asian Pears


1 bunch chard

2 or 3 Asian pears, sliced thin

1/4 cup olive oil

1 or 2 cloves of garlic, diced

3/4 cup chopped walnuts

3 teaspoons wine, champagne or balsamic vinegar

salt and pepper to taste


Prepare this salad immediately before you plan to eat it.  Soak the chard in cold water to clean it.  Drain it and spin it until dry.  Strip the leaves off the stem and break the leaves into bite sized pieces.  Heat the olive oil in a skillet and add the garlic and walnuts.  Fry for 5-8 minutes and then add the chard.  Cook the chard until it is coated in oil and wilted.  Add the vinegar, salt and pepper.  Put the salad in a bowl and top with the Asian pears. Eat immediately!
