Chard, Sun-Dried Tomato & Artichoke Dip

ChardSundriedTomatoArtichokeDip

I love buying local produce!  On a recent trip to a market, I picked up a whole bunch of vegetables, including some wonderful Swiss Chard.  Over the past year or so, I have really increased my use of/eating of greens – Chard, Kale, Spinach, all of that good stuff.  I really enjoy them now, plus they are so good for you!

I remember when I was a kid and we would have Sunday Dinner, affectionately know as ‘cooked dinner’ in Newfoundland.  Like you would have it any other way, right?  The pressure cooker would be used to cook  salt beef and then veg would be cooked on the side in the salt beef broth  – potatoes, turnip, carrot, parsnip & greens. The broth would infuse the veg with delicious salty goodness. Oh, what flavours!   Everything would be piled up on the plate, maybe with some gravy or some mustard pickles and beets.  One thing, though, I would not eat. You guessed it – greens!  I would secretly try to stick them under my plate.  Oh, man, I could not stand  them.  I would suffer to get those down.  No problem now!
