I blame the media for the vaguely racist overtones imputed to this innocent vegetable. However, including it on the list was more a matter of moral integrity than genuine curiosity. On the iceberg lettuce-kale continuum, collard greens definitely fall on the dodgy end. I imagine collard greens are what kale used to look like before it got chicken pox. Neither look remotely appetizing, but perhaps it’s a lesser evil. But hey, that’s what the challenge is all about–pushing yourself to try new, potentially disgusting things. Collard greens might be as horrible as I suspect, or they could be amazing. When I work up the courage to knock this one off my personal list, you’ll be the first to know!
