Lemon Garlic Vinaigrette with Chard

Drizzle this vinaigrette on summer tomatoes, corn on the cob, steamed potatoes, even over chilled leftover pasta for a quick salad.

  • 10 cloves garlic

  • 10 black peppercorns
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice (3 small lemons)
  • 1 cup olive oil
  • 1 big bunch red or green Swiss chard, washed, with most of the stem removed

Combine garlic cloves, peppercorns, salt and lemon juice in a blender and blend until smooth. With the motor running, slowly add the olive oil until emulsified. Taste for salt. Make ahead of time and store, refrigerated, for up to 2 weeks. Just before serving, steam chard until tender, about 5 minutes. Drain excess water and toss with 1/4 cup Lemon Garlic Vinaigrette at room temperature.

Serves 4.
