Are you looking for a salad that is both sweet and sour? Kraut salad is the perfect salad for you. Sauerkraut or kraut is the main ingredient in this salad. I like to use the kind you find in the refrigerated section of the grocery store. My store often sells it in the deli section. You can use homemade or canned, either variety will work for this side dish. Also included in this recipe are chopped onions, diced celery, and green bell pepper.
Sauerkraut salad is easy to make
This recipe is super easy, you will first combine the cabbage, bell pepper, celery, and onion together in a bowl. Stir the ingredients together well. You will also make the dressing for this recipe by combining in a small pot 1 cup of sugar and 4 tablespoons of vinegar. Heat the vinegar and sugar together just enough to where the sugar dissolves into the vinegar. Combine the two, and you are essentially done in preparing this easy recipe.
Ideally, this salad should sit for a few hours before serving. This will give the flavors a chance to mingle together. Sauerkraut salad tastes better the second day, that is if you can wait that long to enjoy this summertime treat. This recipe is actually my Grandmother’s recipe. She cooked simply, but her food was always amazing. She would make this kraut salad during the summer. So next time you get out the grill, be sure to try this tangy cabbage salad.
