Lemon Caper Greens


Author Notes: Two of my favorite flavors -- bright citrus and salty capers combine to counter the bitterness of greens. Good for side dish or over rice for lunch with some nice Parm grated on top. My husband, who eats but does not love his greens, calls this tobacco greens.Ellyn Oaksmith
