I make my own sauerkraut and I have been making this for years. The recipe I had used more sugar and oil, so I like yours much better. I also add whatever I have that is fresh in the fridge. Grated carrot, radishes, green onion etc. Great recipe and so versatile!

this slaw is absolutely the best I have ever eaten. I didn't have any peppers so I used grated carrots instead, this has such a tart but sweet taste and I can see adding many things to this recipe. Thanks for sharing.

I really enjoyed the taste of this dish. Sweet/sour and yummy. I used splenda for the sugar, 1/2 the oil called for and added 1/2 teaspoon of mustard seed. I used sesame oil for the salad oil. I even liked this salad warm! Other than a little chopping this is a very easy dish to make and I think with the changes I made probably pretty healthy too. I like to keep salad like this in the frig in case I get the hungries between meals. Thanks for another winner Manda.
