Lemon-Garlic Greens Saute

This recipe is so simple I almost decided not to post it, but it's definitely my go-to side dish when I want fast, delicious greens. I like to use collard greens and kale in this, but you could also use just one or the other or mustard greens & chard as well (I wouldn't recommend spinach for this because it will cook down too much). I also like this with red wine vinegar and liquid smoke in place of the lemon juice. Be careful not to add freshly washed (still wet) greens to hot oil -- you'll get fireworks.
