Very Yummy Kraut Salad

This recipe was given to me by my mother. She loves creating new salad recipes and usually uses what is on hand. I must admit at first I was a little skeptical but WOW the flavor is amazing! Once you try it you will be hooked! I know I am!

How to Make Very Yummy Kraut Salad


  1. Rinse the sauerkraut well. Chop your veggies and mix with the sauerkraut in a medium bowl.
  2. In another bowl mix your sugar, apple cider vinegar and oil and pour over the sauerkraut and veggie mix.
  3. Chill at the very least overnight in the refrigerator. Note: The longer you leave it in the refrigerator the better the flavors mix. My mother left it in for 3 days and it was amazing and got better each day! Will be making this many times!
