    I remade this salad 10/13/2020 and this time, I'd used LESS sauerkraut as I did the first time, a medium Granny Smith apple, UNPEELED, & chopped, the 3/4 cup chopped pickle, but used Claussen Bread/Butter Pickles. Everything else was kept this time as recipe directed! I'd had the ingredients on hand this time!

    I really liked this recipe! I did scale back on the ingredients used: I used a 15-oz. can sauerkraut, 1 medium Granny Smith apple, chopped, 3/4 cup sweet and tangy pickle relish. I'd omitted basil and parsley flakes and substituted Italian seasoning-1-1/2 tsp. I'd used at least 1/3 cup vegetable oil. This was a unique salad recipe! Thank you for sharing! delowenstein
