Sauerkraut Salad Recipe
I mentioned early this week that my husband's nephew Nathan has been here working with me and it has been amazing. He flew in from Alabama to spend time helping me with recipe testing and to teach me so some fun Southern recipes.
I quickly learned while Nathan was here that he loves Sauerkraut, so any recipe with sauerkraut in it he was all in. LOL!
Enter in this super easy sauerkraut salad recipe that takes only minutes to prepare. The hardest part of this recipe is honestly dicing all the veggies and then waiting for the flavors to meld together for a minimum of a few hours but it is better to wait overnight if you can.
I really like that you can prepare this salad ahead of time and take it with you to a barbecue or family event and not have to stress about getting it done right before you leave. This fun German recipe is always a hit.
- Green Bell Pepper
- Cider Vinegar
Bell Peppers - you could easily use a red pepper for more color in the salad
- Can Opener
- Serving Bowl
- Whisk or wooden spoon
How to make Sauerkraut Salad
Are you ready for how easy this recipe is to make! In a large bowl combine all of the ingredients together. Once you have everything in the bowl whisk or stir it together.
Cover and refrigerate for a few hours or overnight.
That is the entire process!!!! The vinegar dressing is made as you stir everything together creating a sweet dressing with the flavors of onion, celery, and all the other great ingredients.
The hardest/longest part of making this recipe is dicing all of the vegetables. We use this vegetable chopper to make it faster and easier to get even veggie cuts.
Plan time to let this salad rest in the fridge overnight or at least a few hours so all the flavors can med together. We highly suggest using a bowl that has an airtight lid to keep the sauerkraut scent contained.
This salad can be served chilled or at room temperature depending on how you enjoy it.
I have heard of people chopping up an apple and adding it to their Sauerkraut Salad for even more crunch and sweetness.
