Selecting and Storing Chard

Look for chard with a fresh green color and moist, crisp, unwilted greens. The leaves should be unblemished by tiny holes, which indicate insect damage. Wrap unwashed Swiss chard in damp paper towels, place in a plastic bag and store in the crisper of the refrigerator for three to five days.
