A New Cooking Technique for Bitter Greens

By Matthew Thompson, "Squeeze Your Greens," September/October 2012

Learn how this no-cook massaging technique can turn your bitter greens into a tender salad in minutes.


READER'S COMMENT:
"To make a family-sized amount, you really need a restaurant-sized mixing bowl. (I am not about to do two massages for one meal.) Other than that, this was fine. "

3. Massage

With clean hands, firmly massage and crush the greens until the volume is reduced by about half (1 to 2 minutes). They should look a little darker and somewhat shiny and have a silky, soft texture.
