Swiss Chard Salad with Feta Cheese
(Peynirli Pazı Salatası)
Bunch of Swiss chard, washed
5-6 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
2-3 green onions, chopped
2 medium size tomatoes, peeled, diced
1/4 cup feta cheese, cut in cubes
2-3 tbsp walnuts, chopped, lightly toasted
1/2 cup Turkish yogurt, plain
1-2 garlic cloves, mashed with salt
Stack individual leaves on top of one another and roll them up lengthwise. Then cut them into thin slices. Chop the stems, too.
Saute the onion and stems with olive oil for 2-3 minutes in a large pot. Add the Swiss chard leaves, tomatoes, salt and pepper. Cover and cook until the Swiss chard is softened. Do not overcook! Turn the heat off, add the feta cheese and walnuts, mix. Let it cool down.
Serve the salad with Garlic-Yogurt Sauce.
