I have a love/love relationship with Swiss chard. These nutrient dense greens are robust and abundant in the summer months. This salad lets chard steal the show, and rightly so. Swiss chard is packed full of nutrients like vitamin K, vitamin A, vitamin C and magnesium. The phytonutrients found in Swiss chard support bone health, healthy blood sugar balance and decreased inflammation.
Beyond being nutritious, this salad will truly make your summer season complete. The key here is using freshly squeezed lemon juice. I know it's easier to buy the already squeezed stuff, but trust me when I tell you that this salad NEEDS freshly squeezed lemon juice. It needs it, just like it needs creamy feta and colorful greens and the farro, which is full of fiber.
