Wink Preparing Raw Dark Leafy Greens (Broccoli,Kale,etc.)

I learned this tip about how to prepare raw leafy greens for salads and I am such a fan of eating them raw for the nutrients rather than cooking them!

First, if the stems are not tasty (sometimes I like swiss chard stems raw, but most others I really don't like uncooked), set those aside for cooking if you like). Roll up all of the leaves together tightly. Then slice them into very thin slices while rolled together, so that when you're done you will have very nice thin strips of green leaves. Place in a bowl with nice amount of salt and a small amount of oil (if concerned about calories, or you can use more if desired), and a bit of lemon if desired and massage for a couple of minutes until the leaves begin to wilt. Let sit for a while and then serve. This takes so much of the weird taste and texture out of the leaves while retaining all of those wonderful nutrients!

In Botswana Rape leaves are used as a spinach and is more popular than any other green here. The leaves just take longer to cook.
The locals cook it till tender in a small amount of chicken or beef stock then add fried tomato and onions and serve it with samp and beans or pap.

Would be a shame to waste them if they are edible, Rom's response doesn't fill me with confidence though.
