Great-Grandma Maida Dixon made this salad for family gatherings. I think of her every time I make. It's sooo good. It needs to be placed in the refrigerator to allow the flavors to meld. It really is worth the wait.
INGREDIENTS (for 6 servings):
- 1 quart sauerkraut, drained
- 1 onion, chopped
- 2 stalks celery, chopped
- 1 green bell pepper, chopped
- 1 large carrots, chopped
- 1 (4 ounce) jar diced pimento peppers, drained
- 1 teaspoon mustard seed
- 1 1/2 cups white sugar
- 1 cup vegetable oil
- 1/2 cup cider vinegar
In a large bowl, mix together sauerkraut, onion, celery, green bell pepper, carrot, pimientos, and mustard seed. Set aside this mixture.
In a small saucepan, mix together sugar, oil, and vinegar. Bring to a boil. Remove from heat.
Pour sugar mixture over salad, cover, and leave it in the refregerator for 2 days before serving.
