In a large mixing bowl add cornbread crumbs, add seasonings and parmesan cheese mix thoroughly, then mix in onion, peppers, and tomatoes. Slowly add Italian dressing mixing until crumbs are coated. The mixture should me a little moist . (refrigerate if serving later, but allow to reach room temperature before serving)


Cut beverage straw at an angle making a pick at end, also cut straw to fit martini glass.Take sliced roasted peppers and slide them on beverage straw in a skewer method.


Take your favorite martini glasses, (disposable mini and regular work too) a heaping of cooked greens, take a liberal amount of cornbread salsa and place in center area of greens, garnish with roasted red pepper. The art to eating the collard green martini is to get a fork of salsa and greens in every bite.
