1/4 teaspoon salt
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 bay leaf
1 (14.5-ounce) can fat-free, lower-sodium chicken broth

1 tablespoon honey


1. Cook bacon in a large Dutch oven over medium heat until crisp. Remove bacon from pan; crumble. Add onion to drippings in pan; sauté 5 minutes or until tender. Add collard greens, and cook 2 to 3 minutes or until greens begin to wilt, stirring occasionally.
