  • Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Add onion and garlic and cook for 5 minutes, or until the onion is tender. 
  • Prepare the collard greens by removing the stems and slicing the leaves into 1-inch strips. Add the greens to the skillet and cook for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Add the water and bring to a boil. Cover, and cook for 15 to 20 minutes, or until the greens are tender and the water is mostly evaporated. Remove from heat and stir in the red wine vinegar. 
  • Serve with salt and pepper, lemon wedges (optional), and enjoy warm!
