This is my own recipe for collard greens. Once I made them this way my husband won't let me cook them any other way. People who don't typically like greens like these. It is also good with turnips and mustards. I add some of the turnip root if I use turnips.

Great flavor - loved it. I can't get Collard greens here so I used Chinese Cabbage - worked really well. I served it with Fried Okra & Jambalaya Thanks, great meal

Too salty. I'd recommend using the low sodium chicken broth.
