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.
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.
