For me, it's just a matter of economical value. Chard is awesome, but I can get 2-3x as much kale for the same price as the amount of one bunch of chard. Likewise for collard greens. Chard is a very occasional veggie for me.

Green Leaf Lettuce
Baby Bok Choy
fennel bulb (so good in salads and in fish dishes, raw or cooked)
sweet potatoes/ Okinawan yams (easy to find at Asian markets)
haricot verts (the skinny french green beans)
bonus veggie: celeriac root. I love making creamy soup out of it.
I also love all winter squashes and parsnips.
In no particular order, we eat the most of these vegetables:
Lettuce of varying kinds (romaine and iceberg are our most common, probably).
But for interest, I also LOVE hearts of palm. I've never checked what nutritional value they have, but I love eating them out of a can cold. I've heard they're good on salad, and I've used them as a noodle sub for homemade macaroni and cheese and it was delish!
The term "vegetable" is a traditionnal culinary term, not a scientific term. It is basically defined as any eatible part of a plant other than the fruit how non-sweet fruits like the olive, zuchini and cucumber have been traditionnally been considered vegetables.

Thats 10, here are others I eat and enjoy. Mushrooms, brussel sprouts, and kohlrabi (I am really surprised I didn't see this on anyone else's list).
harico verts/string beans
as a non-veggie: Pumpkin/squashes&zucchini
