Sautéed Mixed Greens over Cured Tomatoes

This really is two easy recipes: one is for sautéed mixed greens, and the other is for cured tomatoes. Put them together, and it’s a perfect match. We grow many varieties of greens, and just about all of them work well here. The tomatoes in this recipe are best if they are Romas, but slicer, grape, or cherry tomatoes also will work well. Just use what’s in season, and enjoy how these simple preparations together make a delicious combination.
