Southern style greens usually involve bacon or ham and at least an hour or so of simmering on the stovetop. These simple yet hearty turnip greens make a great side for any BBQ meal or Southern-inspired menu.

Add greens and seasoning to pot. Cover and simmer for about 45 min. or until greens are tender. Add vinegar and adjust seasoning to taste before serving.
