These greens will stand up to a heavy dressing, even a creamy dressing. I thing the best treatment of these kinds of greens is a quick stir in olive oil just until they are wilted. Season with salt and pepper and finish with a splash of lemon juice. Speckled Romaine Lettuce Enjoy this lettuce with a classic vinaigrette. 1 part vinegar, ½ part Dijon mustard and a pinch or two of salt whisked together. Whisk in 3-4 parts olive oil. Taste.

This email came from one of our customers. She used a hot lettuce soup as her inspiration and I have added that below. Thanks to Patricia W for this great way to use up greens!
I saute some onion in olive oil. ( I don't like a lot of onion and I don't care for garlic but I would recommend for those who like it.) I do this in my stock pot, which I am pretty sure is 8 quarts.
Take the leaves apart and wash them well. Dry them in the salad spinner. If you do not have a salad spinner, shake the leaves to remove the water. Lay the dried or nearly dry leave on paper towels or a cloth towel. Gently roll up the towel with the leaves and place in a plastic bag. Store the leaves in the refrigerator.more

I ran across this recipe a few weeks ago, and I bookmarked it for the next time we had turnips. So here you go, from the Healthy Eating for Ordinary People blog. Feel free to leave out the greens if you're using ordinary supermarket turnips. But if you've got some, by all means use them. They're GOOD and will make you feel like a Good Girl (or Boy). Like you are doing the Right Thing.

Turnip greens are an extremely nutrient packed vegetable. However, many folks are lost on what to do with them. They may be prepared the same as you would prepare mustard greens, kale, collards, or chard. The less you alter them, the more nutrients you retain. For the healthiest preparation, try simply steaming your greens. You will want to cut the thick center veins out of them first. Then chop them into about inch sized pieces. Steam them for about 5 minutesmore
Steamed Cabbage In case anyone is still looking for uses for cabbage, try just steaming it. Season with salt and pepper and enjoy! Cooking with Greens Fresh braising greens add flavor, color, and nutrients to your meal. Mustard greens, kale, and spinach are packed with nutrients. Some of the tougher greens, such as kale, may require blanching first to soften them up. Get a pot of boiling water ready and blanch your kale or mustard greens. Take the blanched product and finish by braisingmore
