"GREENS make the best salad to serve with this meal because the flavors are so compatible with the main course. We often use collards here in the South, but spinach or beet greens are good substitutes."
Total TimePrep/Total Time: 25 min.
- 4 bacon strips
- 12 cups torn fresh spinach or beet greens (1 pound)
- 1 tablespoon sugar
- 3/4 teaspoon salt
- In a large skillet, cook the bacon until crisp; remove to a paper towel to drain. Add greens to drippings; cook, stirring constantly, just until wilted. Stir in the sugar and salt. Crumble bacon and stir into greens. Serve immediately.

I would make this recipe again but it was way to plain the way it is written I add red onion and fresh garlic to didn't use the sugar... too boring for me

I love spinach, but this just wasn't my thing.
