  • Citrus-Roasted Paiche in Collard Wraps  After a brief roast in a hot oven, the ingredients for this easy dinner are extra delicious, and wrapping them in blanched collard leaves makes the dish wonderfully healthy.
  • Spinach Salad with Adzuku Beans and Satsuma Vinaigrette To make ahead, simply prepare the vinaigrette and satsumas, pack everything separately and toss all together just before serving. For an main dish salad, add raw veggies and double the beans

Chard is a mild leafy green, much like spinach and packed with nutrition.Try it in this simple Get Your Greens Smoothie with just a few ingredients. Don’t feel like making it at home? Stop by your local store this weekend for a $3 green smoothie at the juice bar.
