Fermented cabbage has 200 times more vitamin C than raw cabbage before fermentation. As per Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride, MD, “With every mouthful of sauerkraut you’re consuming billions of beneficial microbes which will be killing the pathogens in your gut driving them out and replenishing the beneficial flora in your digestive tract.”

In this healthy sauerkraut salad, the sweet carrots and red peppers contrast beautifully with the tartness of sauerkraut. Serve at barbecues or picnics or in a sandwich for extra flavour and texture and added health benefits. This scrumptious sauerkraut salad is simple to make and will keep for up to two weeks when refrigerated
