Rainbow Chard

Tried a new side dish tonight.... We liked it : )  something different, pretty and healthy too.

2 bunches Rainbow Chard
3-4 cloves garlic
3 Tablespoons olive oil
salt and pepper
1or 2 Tablespoons lemon juice

slice the stems of the chard in 1/4 inch slices, set aside. Cut the chard bunches into 1/4 inch ribbons, set aside.  Saute sliced stems in olive oil about 3 minutes, add chopped garlic and saute another minute.  Add Chard ribbons and  continue to saute stirring occasionally to cook through, about 3-5 minutes.  Squeeze lemon juice over all, toss and serve.
