This one was a real crowd pleaser covering all the bases with sweet & sour accompaniments to the salty & savory cheese filled brat from Upstates Creations.  We “kicked up” the kraut from Pickleman by adding a touch of spicy Caribbean slaw from La Talaye while cooking. The vegan German purple potato salad & massaged kale salad we made extra sour to contrast the sweetness of the horseradish pickles.

This kale salad is one of the simplest, tasty & healthy sides about.  Who would have thunk it. Chiffonade, dress & massage the kale; massage to soften & help to break it down, why should your jaw do all the work.  For dressing, the house favorite is lemon, olive oil & honey. Just mix this combo to your palate and emulsify, add salt & pepper to taste.
