Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil

  • ½ Vidalia or other sweet onion, sliced

  • 1 ½ pounds collard greens - rinsed, trimmed and chopped

  • ½ cup water

  • 3 tablespoons balsamic vinegar

  • 2 tablespoons honey

  • 1 teaspoon grated fresh ginger root

  • 5 tablespoons melted butter

  • salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

Directions

  1. Heat oil in large skillet over medium heat. Add onion and cook, stirring, until softened, about 5 minutes. Stir in collard greens, in batches if necessary, until they wilt slightly and all fit in the skillet. Pour in water and cook, stirring occasionally, until bright green and tender, 5 to 7 minutes, regulating heat to prevent burning. Drain.

  2. Meanwhile, whisk vinegar, honey, ginger and butter together in a serving bowl for dressing. Add greens to bowl and toss with dressing. Season to taste with salt and pepper; serve warm.
