Oh yummy, yummy!
See that pile of homemade kale slaw…it ended up on top of my brat. And holy flavor explosion. Oh yummy, yummy!
My boys are not big ‘lettuce or slaw’ eaters, but that is A-OK with me. That means more for me…and this kale slaw was better as leftovers as it soaked in the tangy-creamy dressing overnight! (But still fabulous on the brat!)
Add this to your menu soon! Like for tomorrow!
