Open Fire Mixed Greens

I absolutely love open fire cooking, so much so I made a fire pit especially for such a task. You can cook these anyway you want, but they are always better over an open fire in cast iron. The flavor of the smoke gets into the greens and add something you can never get on a stove top.
