    3KillerBs's Note:

    When I first moved to North Carolina I saw frozen collards in the grocery store but had no idea how they were usually prepared. So, knowing they were related to kale, I adapted my Italian-style recipe for Kale. One southern-born friend says its heresy but I say its delicious.

    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Heat olive oil gently in a large, heavy skillet (I use the cast iron chicken fryer).
    2. 2
      Saute the collards, onions, and garlic slowly and gently in the olive oil. Give it plenty of time since collards are tough if not slow-cooked -- letting them stew in their own juices until tender.
    3. 3
      Serve with balsamic vinegar and parmesan.
    4. 4
      Tip -- add cooked chicken or cooked pork and serve with Italian bread or cornbread to make a complete meal.

      Easy, tasty and it didn't take long either! I enjoyed the addition of the balsamic vinegar and Parmesan cheese. I halved the recipe. Thank you!
