Kraut Salad

My Grandmother Ethel Eynard could cook wonderfully, her recipes were always simple, but tasty. I loved to go over to her house and see what new recipes she was trying out. She was from the Midwest and her recipes weren’t exotic, but rather good home cooking and designed to fill you up. Here is her Kraut salad, we ate a lot of this kraut salad in the summer.

    Made this and loved it! It’s wonderful that you’re keeping so many of your Grandmother’s recipes alive…Reading them, I can just imagine what it must have been like to visit her!

      I still have some more. I am now trying to shoot photos of everything before/as it goes up. I think she is where I got my recipe collecting from.
