Make this sauerkraut salad as one of many delicious German side dishes. This is great for a buffet, picnic, or an Oktoberfest-style party. It's absolutely as wunderbar! And guess what? Even your vegan friends will love you for it!
Sauerkraut is considered to be one of those foods that boosts the immune system. Eaten raw, as in this salad, is a great addition to almost any diet.

One of the most delicious of German sauerkraut recipes is the above salad. With peppers, celery, carrots, and onions, it's one of my favorites.
German salads range from the vinegary ones to the creamy ones. This one is vinegary offset with a touch of sweetness. Traditionally, green peppers are used. Sometimes I use red peppers for that extra touch of color.
As with most salads, quantities are just approximate. Add extra or less of what you like.
I have to admit that this recipe is one I didn't learn from my Mutti. At home, we only ate sauerkraut that was cooked. And, I really love it that way.
Using it in a salad is new to me. But, it's so good this way. And, I love the fact that it's so healthy when eaten raw.
Sauerkraut is so full of vitamins and minerals as well as phytochemicals that are formed during the fermentation process.
This lovely fermented cabbage is also considered on food that helps fight weight gain, so it fits great in a diet regime.
I've teamed up with my own business coach, Renae Christine (yes, do google her!), to bring you this free masterclass. After you watch it, ask me any questions and I'll gladly answer them.
Don't hesitate. I'm not sure how long Renae will keep this free masterclass available.
PS: Yes, Renae really is as amazing as all the reviews say.
PPS: Yes, the course is for handmade items, but I've used it successfully for my cookbooks. I know others are using her methods for services, direct sales ,and even a local ice cream bar & grill that's constantly selling out. You've nothing to lose by taking a look.
