Sauerkraut Salad with Cucumbers in a brine

This salad is perfect to make in any season but especially in the winter time when all the garden fresh vegetables are out of season. A combination of sauerkraut, cucumbers in a brine and a fresh sweet onion make this salad crunchy and a little sour but not overwhelming sour. A touch of black pepper and a drizzle of olive oil is all you need to make it complete. It can be made ahead of time and stored in the fridge for up to a week or even longer if it lasts :)
