29 10 2009

Mmmmm….bacon. This will make any guy eat his greens!

Ingredients:

1/4 cup olive oil or bacon grease

2 tbs lemon juice

2 tbs whole-grain mustard

1/2 tsp sea salt

1/2 tsp fresh-ground black pepper

1/2 tsp pepper

3 cloves garlic, crushed

About 3 large heads kale (or collard greens), washed, dried, and cut horizontally into 3/4-inch strips

1 lb thick-cut bacon, cut into 1/2-inch strips

How to assemble:

  1. Cook bacon pieces until browned.  Set aside bacon pieces.  Pour off most of the oil. 
  2. Add garlic clove and the greens and sauté until tender–5 to 6 minutes.
  3. In a large bowl, combine 3 tablespoons olive oil (or bacon grease), lemon juice, mustard, salt, pepper, and whisk to combine.    Put greens over dressing and toss to combine.
  4. Sprinkle with bacon pieces, and serve immediately.

I just wanted to say that I have had a lot of greens in my life, but this dish is at the top. I served it with chicken legs and the bitterness of the greens and the savory mustard sauce was incredible. Thanks for the great recipe!
