MY REVIEW
Reviewed May. 26, 2012

This is excellent. I substituted cucumber for the yellow summer squash. I made it with the chicken strips on the same page.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 13, 2010

This is the best and easiest summer salad ever. My sons request this for every get together we have. You can mix and match all the vegetables in the recipe and I also use cucumbers, in place of any vegetables not on hand and omit the olives. The sunflowers add a wonderful, crunchy nutty texture and taste.
