Balsamic Collard Greens with Toasted Walnuts and Dried Apricots














     How fun are Collard Greens!!!???  Betcha have never been asked that question before !!!???  :0  This was a new food and new experience for me, and I thoroughly enjoyed it !!!  Food is Fun !!!  Each serving has 145 calories, 13g carbs, and 3.75g protein.

Ingredients~
1 Tablespoon EVOO
1 heaping teaspoon chopped jarred garlic
Dash of Cayenne Pepper
8oz diced Onion
2 Tablespoons chopped Walnuts
8 dried Apricots, diced
Tablespoon Balsamic Vinegar Glaze

     Wash Collard Greens and separate leaves from the stem, and let drain in colander, don't worry about drying leaves, as it is ok to have some moisture on the leaves when cooking in the skillet.  Heat EVOO in skillet, then add Onion and Garlic til lightly browned.  Add dash Cayenne Pepper, and then add Walnuts to heat thru for 3-4 minutes stirring often, being careful not to burn.  Add leaves to skillet and cook down to wilted stage.  Stir while wilting, then add chopped Apricots and drizzle with Balsamic Glaze.  Enjoy  ;)
