    Jules211's Note:

    I had this salad at a Labor Day picnic many years ago. I had to leave with the recipe. Trust me even if you don't like sauerkraut you will love this recipe (o.k. like). It's sweet not sour like you would think. It goes great with BBQ. This reminds me of summer.

      Only rinsed and drained once and it was very sweet and not tangy at all. hmmm Maybe the type of Sauerkraut used? I used Libby's crispy sauerkraut. Good salad but really wanted some of the tang. Would make again without rinsing at all.

      My great-aunt made a salad like this, although it may not have been as sweet I enjoyed this one. May try it next time with a little sesame oil and spoonful of toasted sesame seeds. Overall a great recipe, everyone at the Canada Day Bbq. loved it.

      This is so good! I wasn't quite sure what to expect but had some sauerkraut left over from another dish, so tried this and was very pleasantly surprised. It's a little sweet for my tastes as I really don't have much of a sweet tooth, so next time I would reduce the sugar a bit.
