Grilled Collard Greens
- 1 bunch collard greens
- 2 to 3 slices bacon
- Salt and freshly ground black pepper
- Bring a large pot of salted water, over medium heat, to a boil.
Preheat grill to high heat.
Remove the ribs from the collard greens and discard. Put the leaves into the boiling, water, then add the bacon slices and blanch the collard greens for about 2 minutes. Remove the leaves from the water and place into an ice water bath to stop the cooking process.
Remove the collards from the ice water and stack the leaves flat on top of each other, about 7 to 9 at a time. Put the stacked collards on the grill for 4 minutes per side.
Transfer the leaves from the grill to a cutting board and roughly chop. Put into a serving bowl and season with salt and pepper, to taste.
