Darcie's Sauerkraut Salad

Darcie is married to cousin Jerry and they have two sons,Chris and Nick. Darcie enjoys family and friends and wanted to share a few of her recipes.This one is a nice change of pace from regular slaw and will keep well in the fridge for a couple of weeks as the vinegar acts as a preservative. This can also be frozen and brought out later for use when needed.

Darcie's Sauerkraut Salad

1 pound 11 ounce can of sauerkraut, drained
2 cups celery, chopped fine
1 cup green pepper, chopped fine*
1 1/2 cups sugar
1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil*
1/2 cup apple cider vinegat (unpasteurized, like Bragg's)*

Combine all ingredients in a large bowl, cover and marinate overnight. Stir before serving.

* You can use a mixture of green, yellow, and red peppers.
* The original recipe just called for 'oil' but I am adding a healthy oil.
* The original recipe just called for 'vinegar' and I am adding a healthy alternative.
** 1/2-3/4 cup finely chopped onions or scallions can be added to this salad, if you like.You can also shred some carrot for more color and vitamin content.
