I didn't have the raisins but I did have a bag of dried blueberries cranberries and cherries. I used those and a bag of real bacon bits. I added tomatoes and cucumbers diced into quarters from the garden and a few pecans. I think next time I will cut the sugar in half so that all the veggie flavors will come through. I put it on plates in a bed of spinach leaves. It was great.
I always take this dish to any get together my husband and I attend and it is always a hit! I put 3/4 cup of onions in the mixture instead of the half cup for which it calls. I also use two jars of Hormel bacon bits instead of cooking my own bacon. The recipe is just as good and it cuts down on the preparing time drastically.
Perfect simple and classic. I am a CNA for an Assisted Living Home and cook a lot on the overnight shift. This salad was requested and this recipe was touted by all of the tenants! Many many thanks!!!!
A very nice side to dinner tonight. I only used sugar. The sunflower seeds added a nice crunch and were 'friendly' to my nut allergy suffering husband. Craisins would be a good sub for raisins or even a little diced apple. I think some cooked diced chicken and some extra dressing would make this an easy main dish salad as well.
