Instructions Checklist
  • Coat a 3 1/2- or 4-quart slow cooker with cooking spray; set aside. Rinse salmon; pat dry with paper towels. Arrange salmon in the prepared cooker, tucking under any thin edges. Sprinkle salmon with garlic.

  • In a small bowl stir together mustard, honey, vinegar, and dill. Transfer 2 tablespoons of the mixture to another small bowl; stir in onion and broth. Drizzle broth mixture over salmon. Reserve the remaining mustard mixture until ready to serve.

If using high-heat setting, add chard for the last 15 minutes, stirring once halfway through cooking.

  • Carefully transfer salmon to a serving platter. Stir reserved mustard mixture into chard mixture; spoon onto platter with salmon. Drizzle with any remaining mixture in slow cooker. Makes 4 servings.
