Sauteed Swiss Chard and Strawberries

No, I’m not here to fool you into cooking something that you’re going to hate. I was trying to find something to do with my swiss chard one day and thought “maybe I’d actually like eating this if it tasted sweet.”

110% recommend experimenting with this side dish. Pairs well with grilled chicken. Also make sure you wash and cook the swiss chard properly to prevent grittiness ūüôā
