We tried to duplicate a spicy collard green recipe from one of our favorite restaurants in North Carolina. They no longer serve this as a side, but the chef did tell us the ingredients... without quantities! After some tinkering, we have come close to what we once ordered every visit. Hope you enjoy it as much as we do!
