    Julesong's Note:

    I know this sounds like a strange combination, but it's actually quite good! It's a nice, light salad, with the slightly vinegary taste of the rinsed sauerkraut contrasting nicely against the cool sweetness of the pudding. It tastes similar to carrot and raisin salad. Give it a try!

    1. 1
      Drain the sauerkraut and place in a large bowl.
    2. 2
      Fill the bowl with water and rinse pickling juices from the sauerkraut, then drain using a large strainer (or colander with small holes).
    3. 3
      Put the sauerkraut back into the bowl, refill it with cool water, and set it aside.
    4. 4
      Make the pudding according the package directions (You can use regular, or sugar free pudding for lower calorie, diabetic, and lowcarb menus).
    5. 5
      When it has begun to set, add the lemon rind (Rind from lime could be a good addition, as well!).
    6. 6
      Coarsely chop the pistachios and pecans- a food processor works well for this.
    7. 7
      Pour the sauerkraut into the strainer again and drain it well, pressing down on it with the back of a spoon or spatula.
    8. 8
      In a large bowl mix the rinsed/drained sauerkraut with the pudding, nuts, currants, and honey, and stir well.
    9. 9
      Pour into a serving container and chill in refrigerator for at least an hour before serving.

      I tried this and it was better than I thought it would be. It was sort of like carrot and raisin salad, but with a little vinegar kick. Good!
