Normally I automatically shoot for minimal fuss and few ingredients. So why was it so hard to come up with a recipe for this week’s Sunday Supper?
Because I waited until the last minute and so many good ideas were taken! You will agree when you see this week’s contributor list!

In the meantime, I made a salad you will like if sour, tart and sweet together is your thing. A mingling of German-style goodness.
Here’s your five: sauerkraut, Granny Smith apples, brown mustard, cider vinegar and a bit of sugar.
Since oil, water and salt and pepper were not included in the count I jumped on it!

Cold sauerkraut may put some people off a bit. That’s okay, it works on hot foods too! It tasted great on my beef brats last night. 😉

Sauerkraut and Apple Salad

  • 1/2 cup Granny Smith apple slivers
  • dressing

    Oh you know I’m all over this salad. I’m thinking it would make the most awesome turkey reuben sandwich too.

  26. I’ve only had sauerkraut cooked and in pierogi but it’s my favorite pierogi filling, I’d love to try it raw! I can imagine apples go very well with it.
