Collard Greens

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!
