Apple salad with oatmeal

The combination of apple with collard greens, bacon and Parmesan cheese is delicious.

I adapted one of my recipes that I love to make with brussels sprouts but changed it to collard greens or kale and also added steel cut oats to make it more nutritious and take advantage of this great ingredient in a savory recipe and that way make something special.
