"This is a good salad. Vinegar is a little too strong for me unless I add a bit of sugar to it (depending on what it's used in), and I found it more to my taste when I did this with leftover salad. I think maybe a couple teaspoons or a tablespoon added to the ingredients for the dressing would help it...... for me anyway. I forgot to sprinkle on the sunflower seeds/walnuts. I'm sure that adds to it too."
