swiss chard & fried egg salad
a few weeks ago we had a few friends in town and of course took them to our fav place in ballard, the walrus and the carpenter. that night there was a new swiss chard salad on the menu with pine nuts, a lemon vinaigrette and topped with a fried egg… for me it was love at first bite! since that night, I have made this salad several times for myself for lunch and am completely obsessed with its simplicity and yummiest that I had to share it with you all!
This recipe isn’t particularly exact because I normally just toss it together…
chiffonade 2-3 big leaves of chard, depending on how big you want the salad to be.
for the vinaigrette, whisk together about 1 T olive oil, juice of 1/2 a lemon, 1 capful apple cider vinegar, salt and pepper.
toss the chard with the vin and a small handful each (about 1/4 cup) sunflower seeds and grated parmesan.
plate the chard and top with 1 or 2 fried eggs.
