"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!"
