Collard Greens! mmmmmm

Collard greens are a staple in Southern Cooking.  Traditionally, collards are enjoyed on New Year’s Day along with black-eyed peas and cornbread to ensure wealth in the coming year.  Similar to kale, collard greens contain vitamin K, vitamin A and vitamin C.  Here’s an easy recipe to enjoy alongside your fried chicken!
