Comments on this Recipe

Pretty good, a little bitter for me... perhaps my greens were a day too old. Probably prefer them with some sort of vinegar or feta/bleu cheese instead of olive oil, but not bad!

Great recipe! Very easy and delicious.

Ditto...We make this all the time...Guests love it too!
