Sauerkraut Salad

(From Marjorie Ehman)

Note from Marcie:  This is a sweet salad.  I can see sauerkraut lovers using this as a hotdog topping.  I changed the recipe to include an additional pound of sauerkraut as the recipe had a lot of juice.  I had a Sauerkraut Salad served at my wedding reception in 1971.

2 (1-lb.) cans sauerkraut, undrained
1 cup celery, diced
1/2 cup green pepper, chopped
small jar (1-oz.) pimento, chopped
2 cups white granulated sugar
1 cup cider vinegar

Place undrained sauerkraut in a large serving bowl.  Add celery, green pepper, and pimento.  In a small saucepan, bring to a boil sugar and cider vinegar.  Pour over salad, mix well and refrigerate overnight.
