Colors of Chard

After a cider and a couple rounds of Tapper at Barcade in Brooklyn, I took refuge at the Sunac just a few blocks over. Nothing like a great grocery store to cure a night of bar life. Here is what I found: rainbow chard. It was beautiful and I couldn't believe it was just hanging out in the refrigerated produce section on a Saturday night.

So, what is this rainbow chard and what can you make with it?

Chard shares a family with beets, also a fav of mine, and it can be sautéed to perfection. Or you can try your hand at this delicious-looking chard and fennel gratin.
