Sautéed Summer Squash and Chard

My garden is growing wonderfully! I harvested a single (rather large) scallop summer squash. Not quite enough for two. I also cut a couple small bunches of rainbow chard. Again, not enough for two. But if I sautéed them together, they would be enough. And boy was it good!

Here’s How to Do it:

Start by washing both the squash and the chard. Set them in a strainer to dry.

Heat a heavy skillet, like cast iron, over medium heat. Lightly coast the bottom of the pan with some olive oil.

Cut the summer squash and the chard into small pieces.

Add to the squash pan. Lightly sauté until the squash is starting to soften.

Next add the chard and continue to cook until it’s soft and bright green.

Use the salt and pepper to taste and serve hot.

Simple to make and simply delicious! We had it with BBQ pork.
