Preheat oven to 350°F.
If kale is wet, very thoroughly pat dry with a clean kitchen towel; lay individually on an un-greased cookie sheet. Drizzle the kale with olive oil and sprinkle with 1/4 teaspoon each; greek seasoning, onion powder, garlic powder, ground red pepper.
Using your hands, massage the oil and seasonings onto the kale leaves to evenly coat.
Make sure leaves do nor overlap.
Bake at 350F until most leaves are crisp, switching the pans back to front and top to bottom halfway through, start checking after 8 minutes to prevent burning.
Let cool ..... Enjoy!

Collards should become soft and well coated with the dressing, roll two or three leaves together tightly and with a sharp knife carefully slice thinly, if you are using whole leaf, if you have prewashed, with shears, cut the large stems out, and make pieces smaller.
3. In a large bowl, toss the collards with desired ingredients, cover tightly and refrigerate overnight.
Just before serving, add your favorite topping.
*can also add shredded cabbage, kale or spinach

The preservation of liberty depends upon the intellectual and moral character of the people. As long as knowledge and virtue are diffused generally among the body of a nation, it is impossible they should be enslaved.
