Recipe: Russian Sauerkraut Apple Salad

I nabbed this super simple recipe from this website.

I know sauerkraut is an acquired taste. My mother, although Greek, spent most of her childhood in Poland, so she often cooked with sauerkraut when I was a child. If you haven't had it before, give it a go. You may be surprised at how tasty it is. Plus, it is full of probiotics, thanks to the fermentation process.

What you will need:
1 can of sauerkraut (about 400g)
2 apples (my favourites are fuji apples)
1 tbsp sugar
fresh chopped parsley, to taste
fresh chopped dill, to taste (optional)

Cube apples and add to other ingredients. Combine well and serve. Easy!


  1. Is it very sweet tasting? Intriguing idea.

  2. Not really. The sugar cuts some of the sourness and the apple adds a bit of sweetness, but overall it is a mixture of sweet and sour. An odd sounding combo but it actually works.

  3. yummmm, this might be what I do with my first (eventual) batch of homemade sauerkraut :)

    Happy Vegan MoFo!

  4. I love kraut! This sounds intriguing.
