At Superfoods on Main one of my specialty salads that I make weekly is our creamy collards salad. This is an excellent savory salad that enables you to incorporate this wonderful dark leafy green in your life in a fun delicious way.  Creamy collards is one of the popular salads people choose as a side with their veggie wraps. See picture at bottom.

  2. Then cut them in ribbon (linguini) shape across.
