DIRECTIONS

  • Rinse greens well, transferring from one sink of cold water to another, until water is clear and all sediment is removed from leaves.
  • Tear or cut leaves away from tough stems and discard. Discard old or yellowed leaf sections. The stems and old leaves can cause the greens to be bitter. Coarsely chop leaves.
  • Heat a large skillet over high heat. Cook garlic, jalapeno, and pepper flakes in oil briefly, then add greens, a few handfuls at a time. Cook down each batch until leaves are just beginning to wilt (soften) before adding another handful. Add all greens to skillet in this manner.
  • Stir in vinegar and salt. Cover and cook until just tender, 2 to 10 minutes, depending on the type of greens and your preference.
  • Serve as a side dish (or a meal) with cornbread.
