Sauerkraut Salad-ON A HOT DOG, Mom's Recipe

Beth M.


This is one of those salads that you might turn your nose up at, however, it is a great change and can be used to top a hot dog, or served with a corned-beef sandwich or as a side dish for other meals.

I am posting it 1/03/12 as one of the groups I am participating in requires two ingredients which are in this recipe for a contest entry.
