Whether you make Sauerkraut and Pork Shoulder Roast just for sandwiches or make it for dinner and save leftovers, this is another delicious German-style meal. Soup and sandwich is a natural combo, and lentil is great with savory pork and sauerkraut. Crunchy Green Bean and Dill Salad and Lemon-Gingersnap Parfaits make this meal quick and easy. Cans of soup, pudding, and gingersnaps in the pantry and green beans in the freezer mean you can pull this meal together in minutes.
Serve your family's favorite. Accent the flavor of the lentils by adding a touch of dry sherry just before serving.
Cook green beans tender-crisp in boiling salted water, about 4 minutes. Drain and chill in ice water; drain again. Dress with a simple vinaigrette made with 1 part vinegar, 3 parts vegetable oil. Sprinkle with chopped dill and season to taste.
Layer lemon pudding with crumbled gingersnaps in parfait glasses. Top with a sprinkle of finely chopped crystallized ginger.
