Selection and Storage
- Choose collards with firm leaves that are deep green with no yellow or brown spots.
- Smaller leaves are more tender and have a milder flavor.
- Store collards in a sealed plastic bag in the refrigerator for 3-5 days.
- Rinse leaves before making a snack or meal.
Collards can be prepared the same way you prepare other greens like spinach, kale, turnip greens or mustard greens.
To start, cut the collards into thin strips, removing the thick middle stalk.
- Sauté them! Sauté collards in olive oil with onions, garlic and red pepper flakes. Serve as a side dish.
- Sauce them! Cut the collard leaves in half and slice into thin strips. Add them to pasta with tomato sauce or bean soups.
- Stuff them! Mix collards and chicken sausage into rice for a great stuffing for bell peppers or tomatoes.
Collard Green Recipes:
We like to make a version of this with chicken and use lots of lemon instead of sour cream!
Like most greens, collards can also be eaten raw.
Stuffed Collard Greens

Sauteed Collards with Bacon
If you are a pork person, you can cook greens with bacon or ham hock. I’m not a bacon fan so I use sliced up onions and chopped tomatoes instead of bacon
Ingredients (Serves 4):
4 slices of bacon, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
1 small garlic clove, minced
1 large bunch collard greens, washed, tough stems removed, leaves torn into large pieces
Coarse salt and ground pepper
- In a large skillet, cook bacon over medium-high heat until browned and crisp, about 5 minutes.
- Add garlic and cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds.
- Add collard greens and cook until bright green and wilted, about 3 minutes.
- Season with salt and pepper. Enjoy!
