  1. Sounds delicious as well as attractive. Maybe for a nutritious party platter. Thanks for the recipe.

  2. Next time I cook it I will add a picture to my blog. It does make cute little wraps.

  3. Well, we had the wonderful salmon collard wraps again and they were still so good. I just love this alternative to using bread! I will also enjoy other things wrapped in collards.
