"I love cooking with Peruvian-style adobo sauce," says Johnson. "This recipe features the unexpected sweetness of rice vinegar along with West African palm sugar, which I love for its rich, caramel flavor."

"Collards are full of natural antioxidants and vitamins. Plus, they are low in calories. Traditionally, collards are braised and simmered within an inch of being edible and, well, that's got to stop. The goal is to serve the greens raw so that they're thought of as something healthy and delicious, rather than something that's combined with bacon fat."
