Swiss chard
Watercress
Cabbages! (even the red and white ones.)
Cauliflower leaves- and, indeed, the cauliflower. It's white, but still green, iyswim?
Beetroot leaves
Rocket
The full assortment of herbs- anything you can find, but especially parsley and coriander
Nettles
Dandelion leaves
Novelty salad ingredients- mustard leaves, stuff like that.
And, erm, I'm getting stuck now too, but I know there's more.
