READY IN: 30mins


  • 1
    (14 1/2 ounce) can sauerkraut, drained
  • 1
    cup grated carrot (*)
  • 1
    stalk celery, chopped (*)
  • 12
    cup chopped pepper, any color (*you can mix in a hot pepper if you choose)
  • 12
    cup chopped red onion (*)
  • 34
    cup sugar
  • 12
    cup vegetable oil or 1 light canola oil


  • For the sauerkraut drain and rinse (with water) squeeze excess water out.
  • Taste as you go the more you rinse and the more you squeeze the more tanginess you lose.
  • I usually do this 3 times (we like a little tang).
  • In a large bowl mix sauerkraut, carrots, celery, onion, peppers.
  • Mix well.
  • In a bowl whisk together sugar and oil.
  • Will be grainy looking don't worry.
  • If to thick add a touch more oil.
  • Pour over sauerkraut mixture.
  • Mix well.
  • Cover and chill 8 hours.
  • Note prep time does not include chill time.
  • *You can use as much as you like, any combination works.
  • You can use hot peppers with the green.
  • I have a hard time measuring stuff for salads.
  • I usually chop and dump.
