Collard Green Salad
The zesty greens in this Southern-style salad are a rich, tasty source of vitamins, minerals and fiber.
Raw collard greens? One bite of these sprightly green ribbons, and you'll be a convert. If you can't get collards, use kale.
- 1 lb Collard Greens
- or 1 lb Kale
- 2 T Extra Virgin Olive Oil
- ½ tsp Kosher Salt
- 1 tsp Freshly Ground Black Pepper
- 6 T Fresh Lemon Juice
- Stack leaves of collard or kale; roll up tightly lengthwise, making a cigar-shaped roll. Cut as thinly as possible across the greens from one end of the roll to the other, making thin ribbons (a chiffonade). (You may have to do this in batches. This can be done up to 2 days in advance. Store greens in zip-top plastic bags and refrigerate.)
- Place greens in a large salad bowl. Drizzle with oil. Add salt, pepper and lemon juice. Toss well.
