Balsamic Lemon Greens

Sara Jones, Tucson CSA

The tart flavor of vinegar or citrus compliments the mild bitter flavor of braising greens. Greens prepared this way are a great side dish for a hearty cornbread and bean stew.

1 bag braising greens
2 teaspoons oil
1 squeeze of lemon juice
dash balsamic vinegar to taste
dash soy sauce to taste

Wash and chop greens, leaving the moisture on leaves. Heat about 2 teaspoons of oil over medium high heat. Add greens and stir well to coat. Cover and cook briefly, then add a squeeze of lemon, a few dashes of balsamic vinegar and soy sauce. Cover again and cook a few more minutes.
