Step 1

Start by heating the olive oil over medium-high heat in a large skillet or sauté pan. Add pancetta, bacon or ham and sauté until lightly browned and just criping, remove most of grease when browned if using bacon, leaving 2 tablespoons. Add garlic to meat and sauté lightly, until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Do not let garlic brown. Add the softer of the two greens, in this case the spinach, and sauté until fully wilted, about 2-3 minutes. Add kale and apples and mix in until just tender and bright green, about 2-3 minutes. Add vinegar and remove from heat. Salt and pepper to taste and serve as a side, over rice or with eggs for a healthy breakfast.
