Swiss Chard with Poached Egg Salad

Raw kale salads may be in the spotlight these days, but Swiss chard is the next star green. The earthy leaves can stand up to the pungent Caesar trinity: anchovies, garlic, and Parmesan.

Ingredients

  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 4 anchovies, minced
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 2 tablespoons white wine vinegar
  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 4 large eggs
  • 6 cups thinly sliced Swiss chard, stems removed
  • 2 tablespoons freshly grated Parmesan

Directions

  1. Combine garlic, anchovies, mustard, and vinegar. Add oil in a steady stream,
    whisking constantly, until combined. Season with salt and pepper.

  2. In a medium
    skillet, bring three inches of water to a simmer. Poach eggs.
    Season with salt and pepper.

  3. Toss chard with vinaigrette and divide among
    four plates. Top each with a poached egg and Parmesan.

Cook's Note

Perfectly Poached: Crack one egg at a time into a teacup or small bowl and gently slide into barely simmering water. Repeat with remaining eggs. Cook until white is just set and yolk still loose, 3 to 4 minutes. Remove eggs from water using a slotted spoon.
