Author Notes

This might just be the best Kale slaw recipe ever! Kale is a veggie that everyone should get used to eating, it’s very healthy but can sometimes get a bad wrap because folks don’t know how to work with it. Growing up I only saw kale used as a garnish for plates, haha, but then one St Patty’s day my mom found a colcannon recipe and since then I have loved it. I've tried a lot of kale salads and I think the addition of the potato drives this one into the "hearty" category. —Alexandra V. Jones
