Maple Chard Salad

The crunchy, earthy chard is a great pairing with the sweet and tangy maple-based dressing. Use rainbow chard for a colorful presentation.

  • Duration
  • Prep Time
  • 6 ServingsServings


  • 1 bunch Swiss chard (any color)
  • 2 teaspoons mustard
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon cider vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon orange zest
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 shallot, finely chopped
  • 1⁄4 red bird chili pepper, chopped


1. Rinse your chard in cold water - each leaf should be well rinsed to remove any sandy residue. Chop off any brownish ends on the stem. Pat leaves dry with a paper towel or you can use a salad spinner to help dry once they are chopped.
2. Thinly slice the chard into ribbons. Add to a large mixing bowl. You can rinse one more time in cold water if desired.
3. Place all dressing ingredients in a jar and shake well. Pour over greens and toss well. Serve alone or add a crumbling of cheese if desired.
