    This recipe tasted absolutely wonderful! I didn't take the time to make the orange zest... just poured a little sweet orange juice in the skillet after I put in the shredded Swiss chard. My family loved it and they don't like greens. I made a double batch, but it still wasn't enough for three adults. The recipe is a keeper for us now on!

    Really? Culinary Degree?. One word "sugar". Next time start out with quality ingredients. I found that the combination of sweet orange and the chard was quite nice. Culinary degre? Really?

    This is really NASTY! What a waste of wonderful young swiss chard! The greens didn't cook and the oj was bitter and magnified the bitter taste, leaving an aftertaste that even salty corn chips wouldn't relieve. I have culinary degree and was very careful not to have pith, so that was not the bitter taste. It's very pretty to look at, but that was three bucks down the drain.
