  • In this case, I made it with grilled squid and it works great! You can add a little ground pepper, if you like, I added a little apple cider vinegar and olive oil.

  • Spinach, collard greens and nettles can be a great substitute for Swiss chard!

  • The rest of the side dish can be kept in the refrigerator for up to 2 days.
