  • 1 large bunch collard greens, cleaned, tough center ribs and stems removed (10 to 12 cups)
  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon coarse salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon red-pepper flakes


  1. Step 1

    Working with a few at a time, lay collard leaves in a stack. Roll them up like a cigar, and cut crosswise into thin shreds.

  2. Step 2

    Heat oil in a large skillet until very hot. Add collards, little by little, stirring in more as each handful wilts. Sprinkle with salt and red-pepper flakes. Saute collards, stirring, until tender, 8 to 10 minutes.
