Citrus Rainbow

Recently we received rainbow chard in our produce delivery, and I didn’t want to prepare it in my usual way (sauteed with garlic and onions).  A quick search revealed this recipe, which I had most of the ingredients for.  Yay!  A jumping-off point!
I gathered up all the ingredients.  I didn’t have enough rainbow chard, so I added in a small head of red cabbage.  That turned out to be the best decision of the meal!
To start, I chopped up a tangerine and onion and sauteed them in olive oil. 
While that cooked, I removed the stems of the chard and chopped it.
When the onion/tangerine mix was done, I added 2 tablespoons of rice wine vinegar and the stems.
While THAT cooked, I sliced up the purple cabbage and added it in.
 The last thing left to slice was the chard leaves.  I cut them once in half and then rolled them up.
Then, I sliced them all up at once.  It gave me ribbons quickly.
They went into the pan with all of the other colorful veggies.
When the chard wilted, I added a little more vinegar, and some salt and pepper.  We ate it with salmon, and it was so beautiful… and TASTY!
