    Easy to make and a great side dish. Good way to use up easy-growing swiss chard or spinach. I also enjoy this with a good anount of grated (yes grated) garlic which i add in the last 30 seconds of toasting the nuts and raisins (careful not to burn the garlic!) Thanks for sharing  -  04 Jul 2017
