Greens with Ginger

Greens with Ginger

This is a fresh and bright take on winter greens.  I find myself in a rut when it comes to using all the fresh greens we have all winter.  All too often, I either sauté them in butter with a little garlic and lemon or else cut them into1 thin slivers and serve them as a raw salad with olive oil and balsamic.  Although these are delicious, I needed something fresh and different.  I found the basics of this recipe in a cookbook at a house we were staying at on the beach for a short vacation this winter.  I’m not sure who to credit it to, but it was yummy and versatile.  CSA members will see spinach and spring greens in their bags for the next few months so it is great to have several good ways to cook greens.
