If you’re from the south in the U.S., braised collards may be a family tradition that brings you right home again. Packed with nutrition and more widely available than you might think, collards are a wonderful addition to any diet. The classic braising technique using pork fat may be the flavor of home, but this lighter version is every bit as delicious. Give it a try now to see if this healthier version on a favorite family dish might just pass muster for the holidays ahead.
