How To Copy My Granny's Sweet Kale Salad:This Helps Me Poop!

How to make sweet kale salad at home: Bits of Food
I am just jumping onto the blog to share a copy cat version of my granny's sweet kale salad. 
Side Note: If you want to poop, this recipe is for you.

I do not know about you, but I was never a fan of salads as a kid, especially the ones made with Kale. But, there was only one person who could get me to eat anything green and leafy.

Yes, you guessed right; it was my, granny and she had a way of making the yuckiest foods taste really good. I am almost positive it was her down-home southern cooking and charm that always won me over. My granny loved eating healthy late in her life, and I loved watching her do it because I was never going to get on the bandwagon. LOL, so I thought.

One day I came home super hungry, and all she had in the kitchen was some leftover old salad. This wasn't just any bowl of greens with dressing. It was a masterpiece filled with coleslaw, Kale, carrots, onions, chicken, raisins, apples, and pears. Not to mention, there was a sweet crunch and taste to the salad that I can never explain. 
And to this day I swear there may have been a few prunes in the mix. But granny would never tell the secret no matter how I begged. I guess I wasn't her favorite grandchild, after all. :)  #sorrygrandma

Although my grandmother is no longer with me, I still crave that salad from time to time. So, today I am going to attempt her recipe and hope it turns out just as good as I remember.

Honestly, this salad mix is almost better than my grandmother's. The flavor and the crunch are absolutely amazing.
