NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – Going green doesn’t always mean boring.

There’s a way to make swiss chard tasty and colorful.

CBS 2’s Fresh Grocer Tony Tantillo and his daughter Stephanie have this recipe for you.

Swiss Chard with Polenta


  • 1 Bunch Swiss Chard
  • 4 oz. Tricolor Grape Tomatoes
  • 1 Garlic Clove
  • 2 tsp. Balsamic Vinegar
  • 2 1/2 oz. Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 6 oz. Polenta


Brush 1 ounce of extra virgin olive oil in a sauté pan, lay sliced polenta on top and cook on each side for 3 minutes, until crispy. Set aside. Put sauté pan on medium heat and cook grape tomatoes with 1/2 ounce of olive oil, and balsamic vinegar.

Separately, sauté the Swiss chard with remaining olive oil, and garlic. Cook until well done, about ten minutes. Lay the polenta on a plate, top it with Swiss chard followed by grape tomatoes. Enjoy hot!
