Greens with Envy!

Sheri Raleigh-Yearby


An honored favorite of the Sunday Table for many African American families. Seasoned greens! This recipe put a Caribbean twist on this Southern Dish and uses smoked turkey to replace bacon or smoked ham hocks, which are much higher in fat and sodium. The delicious blend of peppers and Chow Chow kick it up a notch!
