Swiss Chard Green is recognizable by its thick, flat central stem and its glossy green, slightly crinkled leaves. Until recently, red- or white-stemmed chard was mostly what you found in markets, but the beautiful Bright Lights variety, with stems of gold, orange, and pink, is now easier to come by. Colorful rainbow chard is the tastiest chard variety, because each color has a slightly different flavor. It has the familiar mineral quality of spinach, slightly exaggerated toward the flavor of beets (the red leaves even more so), with a mild sea-salty dimension as well. Chard can be used much like spinach in braises, gratins, and the like, though unlike spinach it's a bit too tough to serve raw.
