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.
