  • 4 large collard greens leaves, about 9x12 inches each
  • 12 oz. (½-inch slices) turkey or cooked chicken
  • 8 tomato slices
  • 1 avocado, quartered and sliced lengthwise
  • 4 slices cheddar cheese
  • coarse-grain mustard, sriracha, pesto, mango chutney, or other condiment (optional)
  • olive oil, to brush on leaves


  1. Bring a pot of water to a boil. Fill a large bowl with ice water. Break off the thick stems from collards, leaving the leafy portions intact. Boil leaves until bright green and pliable, about 1 ½ minutes. Submerge in ice water bath. When cool, pat dry.
  2. Lay leaves on a work surface. Divide turkey, tomato, avocado, and cheese equally among the four leaves. Add a dollop of mustard (or other condiment, if using). Roll each leaf up like a burrito, with sides folded in. Lightly brush surface with oil. (You can store these in the fridge until you're ready to cook, up to 1 hour.)
  3. Cook each wrap on a panini grill, seam side facing up, until grill marks appear, cheese has melted, and sandwich is heated through, about 5 to 6 minutes. Wipe off grill between sandwiches.
