2. It’s Dynamic
Unlike many foods, swiss chard’s flavor changes a lot when it’s prepared in different ways. Eaten raw in a healthy salad, it boasts a slightly bitter taste that mixes favorably with a sweet salad dressing, like raspberry vinaigrette. Saute it in a pan, however, and the bitterness dissipates, giving it a texture and taste closer to spinach.
That makes swiss chard a popular choice for home cooks and professional chefs alike, particularly if they’re cramped for refrigerator space and storage.
