Quick 'n' Easy Collard Greens Recipe at
Cut stems from greens, cutting/removing the stems off all the way up into the leaf. Rinse leafs well and drain all water from leafs. pile 3 to 5 leafs rolling them as if you were rolling a burrito, with a sharp knife starting at the end of your roll begin cutting shreds repeat process until all greens are shredded. take onion, cut in half, lay flat side down and cut onion in to thin slices, repeat with second half. Cut pack of bacon in half, wrap and refrigerate unused half, take half to be used and cut bacon into small squares. In a large skillet cook bacon and onion till bacon is done and onions become translucent, do not discard grease, begin adding handfuls of greens stir frying them in the bacon/onion grease until the greens shrink, continue to add greens until all have been placed in skillet. stir fry until all greens are soft yet still slightly crunchy to the tooth. season with creole season salt to taste. drizzle a little white vinegar or hot sauce on top and enjoy! :)

Quick, easy and delicious.
This was a very easy recipe to prepare. The flavor of the greens is a lot fresher than more typical long-simmered collards. I did find that I needed to cook the greens longer than suggested in order for them to be tender. My other suggestion would be to use separate spices like cayenne, salt, pepper and onion powder rather than using a pre-made Cajun spice mix. That way you can separately adjust the heat and the saltiness. Do add the vinegar at the end! It brings nice brightness to the dish.
