Morning begins as sunlight pokes through tree branches and people rush into their daily routines, past well-trimmed lawns and tidy trash receptacles to their residence hall home, classroom, or office with the piece of mind that this day will be like any other on the Winona State University campus. What often goes unnoticed is the team of people that maintain this home away from home.

Chard is a flavorful, mild and nutritious workhorse vegetable. It is a staple green in many kitchens. Available from spring to fall, it can be used in soups, stir fries, salads, side dishes and quiches, frittatas and omelets. It can be used in any recipe calling for spinach. The very young and tender leaves can be eaten raw in salads. But mostly chard needs to be cooked.

It is almost 9:00 p.m. as I write this. The outdoor temperature is hovering around 90 degrees and the first day of summer is still two weeks away. Lighter meals sound appealing.

Green or red. Tender or crisp. Mild or bitter. Leaf or head. Smooth or crinkly. Mix or match. Lettuce is so much more than iceberg. Don't get me wrong, iceberg has its place. It can sometimes save a sandwich. But iceberg all the time is boring. I am in favor of imagination and variety, when it comes to lettuce -- as well as a few other things I can think of.
