4 cups tightly packed greens -- washed and trimmed
1 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
2 cloves garlic minced
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
---Note: Greens such as kale, dandelion greens or spinach.

Preparation / Directions:

1) Prepare grill for medium fire.

2)In medium bowl, combine greens, 2 tablespoons water, the oil, vinegar, garlic, salt and pepper. Transfer to center of double layer of heavy-duty foil. Make packet by bringing 2 sides of foil up to meet in center and pressing edges together in two 1/2" folds. Then fold edges of each end together in two 1/2" folds. Allowing room for packet to expand, crimp edges together to seal.

3) Grill Greens until cooked through, 10-12 minutes. Remove from grill and open packet carefully, as hot steam will escape. Divide evenly among 4 plates.
