Mustard Greens and Corn Skillet

When I was a young girl I remember going to the garden with my Grandmother and gathering Mustard Greens, and it was always very cold. I remember thinking how do things grow when it is so cold, I still wonder that sometimes. Like my Grandmother we have some awesome Mustard Greens in our winter garden and today we are using some of those fresh greens to make this delicious combination of greens and corn with a very special bacon vinaigrette. We just love this fresh dish, it is great served as a side dish or top it with a protein and have a main dish.

3 cloves garlic, minced
2 cups whole kernel corn, fresh cut off the cob or frozen

In a large skillet fry the bacon crisp and drain it on a paper towel. Drain the bacon fat to a container and set aside.
In a fruit jar or mixing container, mix together all the ingredients for the Vinaigrette, put a lid on the container and shake the container until the mix looks creamy.
In the same large skillet add 1 tablespoon olive oil and saute the onion, garlic and peppers until the onion is clear.
Add the corn and continue to cook until the corn has caramelized just a bit on the bottom, but do not burn.
Add 8 cups of the mustard greens and mix with the corn and peppers.
Pour the Vinaigrette over the vegetables and mix, cook until the greens begin to wilt.
Add the last 2 cups of greens and mix well.
Cover the skillet and let steam for 2 minutes.
Garnish with the chopped crisp bacon.
Enjoy!

Mustard Greens are easy and fun to grow, you can even grow some in a container, but if you can't grow them pick some fresh ones up at the farmers market or your local super market. Thanks so much for visiting with us today and enjoying some fresh vegetables from our garden. Hope you have a great week and come back to see us real soon!
Peace and Joy

  5. I have to admit that I'm not big on greens on their own. So, I like the idea of adding corn and peppers to them. I let the last of my greens go to flower and am loving watching the bees enjoy them!
