Learn how to make your own fresh mozzarella.
- 1 3/4 lb Swiss chard
- 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
- 1 garlic clove, finely chopped
- 1 1/2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
- 10 oz chilled lightly salted fresh mozzarella, coarsely grated (about 1 1/2 cups)
Tear chard leaves from ribs in large pieces. Slice ribs 1/4 inch thick, reserving leaves separately.
Heat oil in a large heavy skillet over medium-high heat until it shimmers, then sauté chard ribs and garlic with 1/4 tsp each of salt and pepper until ribs are crisp-tender, about 4 minutes. Cool to room temperature.
Stack chard leaves, then tightly roll into a cigar shape and very thinly slice crosswise. Toss leaves with ribs, lemon juice, mozzarella, and salt and pepper to taste.
