  1. Set a large skillet over medium-high heat and coat with cooking spray. Add ham and onion; cook and stir until onion is clear. Add the tomatoes and turnip greens and cover the skillet. I use a 12 inch skillet and I have to pack the greens down a bit to make them fit at first. When the pan starts to steam, reduce the heat to medium-low and cook for about 12 minutes.
  2. Transfer the greens and ham to a serving bowl and toss with apple cider vinegar.

I also skipped the tomatoes entirely. I also overdid the ham. It came out quite salty as a result. Anyone who makes a similar mistake: slice in a few potatoes and re-cook until those are tender....

For such a simple recipe, this is delicious! We had some fresh turnips from the garden and as I was washing them I thought it would be nice to use the greens as well. So glad I did. My only c...

This was good! Didn't have ham and used a large chopped yellow tomato and it was really good regardless.

This recipe was pretty good. If I make it again I will only use 1 tbs cider vinegar though; I thought 2 tbs was too much.
