    Looks Delicious! I wish our CSA share included rainbow chard this time of year. Sadly, there are precious few tender greens to be had here in KY come July. We’re in the thick of the eggplant-squash-tomato days. I suppose it could be worse. I’ll save this recipe for next spring, though.

  2. I should have planned my visit so that I could be there now, to cook for you! Congratulations again. She’s adorable.

    One of Charlottesville’s newer CSAs allows you to pick and choose your produce, and a share comprises one brown bag full of produce per week. We are hesitant to join because we love the challenge that traditional CSAs present.

  4. Yay!!
    Congrats to you and your family! Sounds like you had a pretty exciting delivery…my 2nd was so much faster {and easier} than the 1st and came 5 days early…but, not that much faster!
    Love that my boys have each other and I think sisters are pretty special too! It’s been 7 whole years since we became a family of 4, but I remember it being a very exciting and exhausting time. :)

    Can’t believe you’re cooking away here already! This slaw looks fantastic. Making a chard slaw has been on my food to-do list for a long time, so I will be definitely trying this one.

    Best to you + the wee one!

    • Hi Kate, Thank you so much! I am loving watching the sibling bond develop. So nice to know that they’ll always have each other in this world.

      As for the cooking, it’s such a marathon each week trying to use up our CSA share, we’ve just got to keep going.

      I rarely comment on anything in the Internet world, but I have to thank you for this wonderful recipe. It has become a favorite and I get requests for the recipe every time I share it. Seriously. It is one of my new favorite recipes of all time.

  5. Congratulations on the new addition!! This salad looks fantastic and will make short work with all the CSA produce I’ve got on hand. Looks delicious.

  6. Wowza! Congratulations on the new addition! That is the best news of the day.

  7. Congratulations on the new member in your family! I love your blog!

    This is so funny to see. We’ve been eating absurd amounts of kale and collard slaws. Good to know we are on the same wavelength, even if states apart. Good luck and much love to the family of four.

    • Hi Shelley, that’s so funny! I am sure that you guys get more than your share of leafy greens all summer up there. Here’s hoping a few tomatoes come your way too. Thanks for the nice wishes–hoping to see you guys sometime sooner than later.

  9. So so happy for you guys! She’s just gorgeous. Hope to meet both your girls in person some day!

  10. Hi Julie, That would be great! We aren’t traveling much these days, but if you get back to NYC we’ll have to have you and your family for dinner.

  11. Wow what a delivery story!

    I’m a little obsessed with rainbow chard right now. I am finding at our little farmer market store and it has been looking amazing. I slice it up thin and saute it in a little olive oil with aleppo pepper, have you ever tried it? I discovered it last year and I’m hooked on it.

    I’ve also been using the leftover sauteed chard as a topping for a tortilla pizza. A little salsa, pintos, cheese and chard on top of a tortilla then in the oven for a bit. A weird but delicious combo!!

  12. And I meant to say before I hit Submit…

    I was drawn to this recipe b/c I love that the chard is raw! I am going to have to try this one out! Looks so colorful and delicious.

    Congrats on becoming a fam of 4!!
