1

Place the greens in a large skillet over high heat with only the water adhering to them from their last rinsing. Cook, stirring occasionally until they wilt, about 4 to 5 minutes. Do not overcook; they should remain bright green. Place the greens in a strainer and run cold water over them. Press out as much water as possible from the greens and cut them in half.

2

Return the greens to the skillet with the pine nuts, raisins, olives, garlic, olive oil and salt and pepper to taste. Turn the heat to medium-high, add 3 tablespoons of water and continue cooking until soft, but still green, about 6 minutes, tossing frequently. Remove the greens from the skillet, let them come to room temperature and serve.
