When it comes to Easter in my family, many different foods are made. One of my favorite of all of the food my family makes is ham, especially ham made with pineapple. The pineapple gives it a sweet taste and the flavor varied depending on the kind of ham. A honey ham topped with pineapple some say is a little too sweet but in my opinion it is perfect. My family always does ham with a bunch of different side dishes so everyone can have a little of everything that they like. This year for Easter, along with ham and pineapple, my aunt, Kathleen Warner, made something she always makes and I absolutely love it, and that is what she calls Cabbage Salad. Cabbage salad in my family is literally coleslaw without carrots and red cabbage and it is one of my favorite things in the whole world. When I told my aunt that her cabbage salad is one my favorite foods that she makes it brought the biggest smile to her face that I haven’t seen in years. She actually told me how she makes it too and the recipe I will be posting here as well. My family makes various desserts on Easter, mostly 2 different pies, but this year was a little different. We didn’t have just the 2 different pies, which were apple, and lemon meringue, we had a fruit salad that had blackberries,blueberries,strawberries,and chocolate chips with what i thought was a crumb cake mixed in with whipped cream but unfortunately didn’t find out what it was. All I know is it was fantastic and I really need to find out which one of my family members made it so I can get that recipe too. As I said in the beginning, when it comes to Easter, my family makes many different foods. Some traditional like ham and some not so traditional, like the cabbage salad.
