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


  • 1 can (14 ounces) sauerkraut, rinsed and well drained
  • 1/2 cup chopped celery
  • 1/2 cup chopped green pepper
  • 1/4 cup chopped onion
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup white vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon celery seed


  1. In a large serving bowl, combine the sauerkraut, celery, green pepper and onion; set aside. In a small saucepan, bring sugar and vinegar to a boil; cook and stir for 1 minute or until sugar is dissolved. Remove from the heat; cool slightly. Pour over sauerkraut mixture; sprinkle with celery seed. Toss to coat. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour. Serve with a slotted spoon.
