MY REVIEW
Reviewed Aug. 14, 2014

I love this salad!! Be sure to find FRESH sunflower seeds, though. So many stores keep nuts for a long time and sunflowers are notorious for turning rancid and have a bitter taste - even if the package has not "expired". I've found shelled, unsalted pistachios to have a better flavor in this salad. Love using the naturally sweet rice vinegar, fresh bacon bits and diced red onion!

I use a similar recipe but use cider vinegar and raisins as well as red onion instead of green. My favorite

This salad is AMAZING!! I use red wine vinegar insted of rice vinegar, mainly because that is the vinegar I always have on hand. The flavor is excellent and everyone seems to enjoy it.

I have made this salad many times. It taste just like the store bought ones. When I make it I put sliced red onions in it so my picky husband can take them out. He just has never like raw onions. I also use bacon bits instead of bacon strips. It saves time and cleanup. Thank you Jessica for sharing this wonderful recipe.

I took it to a bbq and it received many compliments. I followed the recipe exactly except I used a couple extra slices of bacon.
