 Ingredients List

  • 3 tb Olive oil
  • 3 c Collard greens

In a wok or the largest saute pan you have, heat the olive oil over high
heat until it just begins to smoke.

Quickly throw in the greens, add the salt and pepper, and stir madly for 30
seconds, turning the greens over and over until they have all wilted
slightly and have turned a rich, bright green. Remove from heat, add the
lime juice, Tabasco, and additional salt and pepper to taste, and stir
