This month on Leena Eats, I’m featuring the dishes I think go into the perfect bbq. Today’s recipe is a side dish, and one of my favorite: cold swiss chard salad with pickled cherries. I’ve always admired swiss chard’s rainbow-colored stalks, and I was stoked to find a recipe that makes it tastes like it looks–like a sweet and sour rainbow. And when it comes to hosting bbqs, you want a side dish that you can make in advance (check), that doesn’t need to be heated and can contrast with the hot food you are grilling up (check), and that can compliment your food (check).
The recipe and more food porn after the jump.
