"Very tasty salad. Sweet like a coleslaw. I followed the recipe to the letter, except that I think I put in a bit more broccoli, used red wine vinegar, and I heeded the warning of others and went eas..." See morey on the onion. I found that just after I mixed it up, the onion was very strong. I made it up the evening before I was going to use it, and the next day, the onion flavor was barely noticeable.

I only use 1/4 of the red onion, otherwise it is too strong for our taste; also, I use sunflower seeds and apple cide..." See morer vinegar instead of almonds and white wine vinegar. For an absolutely awesome pasta salad, add (2) 9-oz. pkgs. of cheese-filled tortellini, cooked al dente, then well-drained and cooled. It makes a terrific picnic and potluck pasta salad and always gets rave reviews."
