Swiss Chard Tzatziki

I've been on a Greek yogurt kick lately. I love traditional tzatziki with cucumber but wanted to try something a little different. The Swiss chard delivers a slightly different texture (almost like spinach dip) and some added health benefits.

Swiss Chard Shopping Tip

Buy green leafy vegetables like arugula, watercress, and collards – they are good sources of vitamins A, C, and K and minerals like iron and calcium.

Swiss Chard Cooking Tip

Brighten up sandwiches or salads with small, tender leaves like spinach and add larger, tougher leaves like kale to soups and stews.
