This is good. I have taken this recipe to many functions. Everyone loves it! For variety, I eliminate the raisins and sunflower seeds and use red seedless grapes, halved and toasted almond slivers. Yummy!I get lots of requests for the recipe even from my husbands fishing buddies!



This has been one of my favorite salads for a couple of years. I'm not a raisin fan, but in this salad, with the blend of the onion, the bacon, and the sweet-sour dressing, the taste is wonderful. The only thing I do differently is use pine nuts. I prefer the flavor of pine nuts, and they are larger and don't seem to stick to the bowl as much as the sunflower seeds do. I have even used sliced almonds as well.



I have made this salad for years.....without the raisins and sesame seeds. It is always a hit! Another suggestion, if you are trying to cut out sugar, make it with "Splenda" sweetner---tastes the same without the extra carbs/sugar!!!!
