Simple Sautéed Collard Greens
- 5-6 large collard greens
- 1 onion , shallot or leek
- 2 tbsp butter
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- 2 tbsp apple cider vinegar
- salt and pepper
- 1/4 cup raisins (optional)
Rinse collards and remove inner stem by cutting with a share knife alone the spine to keep each side of the leaf intact.
Stack leaves and roll up into a cigar shape.
Slice the roll into rings then cut each ring in half to get 1 inch pieces of collard.
Heat butter and oil over medium high heat until butter is melted and hot.
Add onion and sauté 3 to 4 minutes until translucent.
Add collards, apple cider vinegar and salt and pepper to taste.
Sauté for 5 to 8 minutes until collards are tender.
Throw in raisins in the last 2 minutes if desired.
Makes a great side dish. Add 1/4 cup of chopped fried bacon if desired for a smoky flavour!
