I make this but I do a couple of things differently that makes it so much more tasty. I put the mayo and the raisins in a blender and it makes the dressing much better. After mixing let it sit in the fridge over night. Add the sunflower seeds right before serving.
After beginning to make this salad I realized all of my raisins had been eaten up by a "little mouse" (kids). So I used Craisins and it was delicious. Also the Craisins added color. Everyone enjoyed it and hubby wants me to make it again!
I made a "mistake" and put in horseradish mayo instead of plain. OMG. It is FANTASTIC! It's got a zip like sushi with wasabi sauce. I also tried adding some raw corn kernels (freshly trimmed off the cob) which made it even better.
I love this recipe but change it up a little. Sometimes I use maple flavored bacon and craisins.instead of raisins and no matter what bacon I use I always put about 3 tablespoons of the bacon grease in the salad along with the mayo and Splenda. The bacon grease gives a little extra flavor. Love this salad.
I made this for a potluck and followed the directions exactly except that I used turkey bacon (some people in our company don't eat pork). So good! Husband and I almost wanted to eat the entire bowl by ourselves and just buy something else for the potluck lol!
