Crunchy Kraut Salad

Anyone who likes sauerkraut will enjoy this salad. I serve it as a side dish with ham, any kind of sausage or a sandwich. -Mrs. J.B. Culwell, Arlington, Texas

    I was reluctant to try this, but I am glad I did. Good salad.

    This is so good.The only thing I do differently is, I use kraut that my son makes. It is so much better than anything from the store. I also omit the celery since my family does not care for it.

    My husband and I really liked this salad. It was so different from other sides we normally have- which is why I was hesitant to try it- but glad I did. The celery and onion were not at all overpowering, but combined with the kraut to give such a great tasting crunch. Did I mention this was cheap to throw together? Leftovers were also fantastic. Will definitely make this again!

    Every time we have a pot luck in our park, I'm ask to bring this dish! For some reason, men really like this dish!
