Marinated Collard Greens

My collard green addiction has not waned. I still try to find new ways to prepare them. I happened upon a truly interesting recipe that has become a staple for me.  This recipe uses collard greens but is great with other similar greens as well like radish greens, kale, and swiss chard.

Ingredients

1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
1/4 cup chopped sun-dried tomatoes
1/4 cup diced radishes
1/4 cup chopped onions or leeks (white part only)
1 garlic clove, finely chopped
1 tsp. red pepper flakes
2 tsp. sea salt, divided in half
1/2 tsp. black pepper
1 bunch collard greens, washed
1/8 cup olive oil

Directions

1. In a small bowl, combine vinegar, tomatoes, radishes, onions, garlic, red pepper, 1 tsp. sea salt, and pepper. Set aside.

2. Take several collard green leaves, roll up like a cigar, and cut into thin strips. Continue until all greens are sliced. Place in a large bowl, drizzle with olive oil and 1 tsp. sea salt. With hand, massage into collard greens.

3. Add marinade and mix with hands until all are well coated. Let marinate for at least 4 hours in the fridge.
