Sauerkraut Salad

Marcia McCance


This is from Stephanie's collection of Mom's recipes. There are others on JAP but none exactly like this one.

Mom and Dad lived in Cleveland Ohio for a while when many Polish people were immigrating to the U.S. and settling there. Mom got to know some of the ladies and they exchanged recipes. I don't know that she got this recipe from one of her friends, but it certainly seems likely.

I do remember that one of them taught Mom how to actually make the sauerkraut. She made it in the basement and we were not allowed to touch it!

May have to try it again, soon.

How To Make The Perfect Hard Boiled Egg Recipe

How to Make the Perfect Hard Boiled Egg

Kitchen Crew @JustaPinch

They pack protein into a salad, are a fantastic on-the-go breakfast and a necessity for making deviled eggs. Hard boiled eggs are fantastic but are a bit intimidating to cooks....
