This hearty side dish comes together quickly and balances perfectly with a light sauce of butter, vinegar and a touch of brown sugar.
This recipe works well with any green that can hold its shape, not just chard, and I've tried it without the onions as well if I'm really short on time.
Quick Caramelized Chard and Onions
Recipe modified from My Recipes
1 Tbsp. butter
1 Tbsp. olive oil
1-2 onions, sliced thin
16 c. chopped swiss chard
2 Tbsp. water
1-2 Tbsp. balsamic vinegar, to taste
1-2 Tbsp. brown sugar, to taste
Melt butter and olive oil in a large skillet and add onions.
Lightly salt and pepper onions and let cook until starting to brown, 10 minutes.

Cook until chard is just wilted, about 4 minutes.
Stir in vinegar and brown sugar, stirring until sugar is dissolved.
