Sauerkraut and carrot salad

    45 min

    This is a tart and fresh salad, eaten in Poland during winter months, when fresh vegetables used to be scarce and home cooks would mainly rely on fermented or tinned veg. Packed with vitamin C and natural probiotics, this salad will help you avoid the cold.

    I did not make this recipe so I had to give it one star. There is a lot of sugar in this recipe so, as a diabetic, I know I can not go with it. Three tablespoons of sugar plus carrots is a lot. Plus, if you look at the nutritional chart the sodium is way high, for anyone. One viewer said she added maple syrup - more sugar. Not complaining, just a caution note as to nutrition., so don't blast me. Eat all your heart desires.  -  21 Sep 2018  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Definitely must try this. My family loves everything in this, and I've had something similar before. Don't be afraid to try something new. If you like the basic ingredients, there's a good chance you will really like it. And it's good for you!  -  21 Sep 2018  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
