Greek Style Steamed or Boiled Greens

In the Greek culture, "horta" is the word that refers to steamed or boiled greens. Usually, this indicates that the greens are wild. In Greece that usually means Lamb's Quarters, amaranth, and other greens such as dandelion. In the United States, any number of greens can be used including spinach, escarole, mustard greens, and kale. All you do is steam or boil as usual and season with the juice of 1/2 - 1 lemon, a touch of olive oil, and a pinch of salt. I am eating steamed kale prepared that way right now and it is delicious!
