I buy the organic pre-washed greens from earthbound. Their 50/50 spinach/spring mix + left over turkey, tomato, onion, olive oil, balsamic vinegar, salt, pepper BOOM awesome salad. Add feta for extra awesome.

I believe that they are legumes (beans), so no they are not paleo.

Saute some onions and garlic in olive oil. When the onions are soft, add white wine and greens (chard, kale, etc.) and let it steam until it reached the desired texture. Grate some good parmigiana-reggiano cheese into the greens and enjoy.

If your meat is grass-fed and you're including organs from time to time, I don't think you really need anything else. No such thing as an essential fruit or vegetable in my opinion.
