Salt the greens lightly and cook, covered, in the water clinging to the leaves. When the greens are just tender, drain and transfer to a bowl or chopping block. With a sharp knife, cut through the greens a few times, shredding into very broad strips. In a salad bowl, combine greens, olive oil and lemon juice. Season with pepper to taste and toss gently to blend flavors.

Serve warm.

Serves 6.
