Mixed Greens

You can find a mix of hearty greens in just about any typical African, Caribbean and southern American meal. Being from the South, I became accustomed to seeing the bottle of vinegar with chile peppers settled at the bottom on the table next to the salt and pepper and a condiment called chow chow pickle. These condiments were used to kick up your greens. You will find these add punch.

Comments on this Recipe

I would replace the canola oil with organic cold-pressed virgin olive oil or coconut oil. Those are the best, healthiest oils to use. This recipes looks great...I'm gonna test it out this weekend, & I'll let you know!
