I enjoyed this at a friend's BBQ and had to have the recipe! The combination sounds odd, but the end result is fantastic. I served it with grilled andouille sausage and creamy potato gratin. It was a memorable meal thanks to this inspired dish. Read More

This recipe is Great with modifications. I followed another's suggestion to use 1/3 cup sugar (white) 1/3 cup oil 1/3 cup cider vinegar. I also used 3 stalks celery 1 whole red pepper in place of pimentos 2 carrots shredded/grated and 1 onion finely chopped. I think the caraway seed could have been increased a little bit. I might try that next time. Thanks for a new way to prepare sauerkraut! Read More

I thought this was good. I might decrease the sugar a bit next time but it really is a delightful change of pace from regular sauerkraut. Read More

Wow tangy is right! I love sauerkraut but the cider vinegar seemed to overpower it a little too much. Next time I'll use a bit less than 1/4 cup. edit I took this to work everyone raved. Some begged me for the recipe too. So although I didn't care for it at first other people couldn't get enough of it. Read More

I did not know what taste to expect and was pleasantly surprised. I would cut the oil and sugar in half next time and perhaps try fresh shredded cabbage instead of kraut. Read More

The only reason I gave this less than 5 stars is the stated amount of sugar seemed like too much as others have remarked. I used 1/2 cup and that was plenty. I didn't have pimento on hand but my bell pepper was red and gave it great color. The 'kraut I used was homemade and already had shredded carrot in it otherwise I think that would have been tasty addition also. It was a BIG hit at our dinner party with plain pulled pork sandwiches even though it only marinated for about 4 hours so don't let that stop you from making it! We will be having this salad again for sure! Read More
