- Prep Time 15 minutes
- Total Time 15 minutes
- Yield Serves 4
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 sweet onion (such as Vidalia), halved and thinly sliced
- Coarse salt and ground pepper
- 1 1/2 pounds mustard greens (2 bunches), stems removed, sliced 1 inch crosswise
- 2 teaspoons cider vinegar
- In a large skillet, heat oil over medium-high. Add onion; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring frequently, until onion is tender and golden, 6 to 8 minutes.
- Add as many greens to skillet as will fit; season with salt and pepper. Cook until wilted, tossing and adding more greens as room becomes available, 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in vinegar; season with salt and pepper, and serve.
Mustard greens don't last long, so buy only what you plan to use within a few days. To clean, fill a bowl with cold water, and add greens, swishing gently. Scoop out greens. Drain water off. Repeat with fresh water until no grit remains at the bottom of the bowl. Dry with a salad spinner, or pat with paper towels. Store washed greens in a resealable plastic bag lined with dry paper towels in the refrigerator up to 1 day.
