Yum! When I tried the dressing by itself I thought that it would be too strong flavoured for my family but when I put the salad together the flavours really worked well! Thanks for sharing this recipe.
This was a wonderful combination of flavors and textures ~ DH loved it. I didn't have sunflower seeds, so used toasted pumpkin seeds instead. Very healthy salad and easy to make. I used fresh rock shrimp. Thanks for posting ~ this is another new favorite for the keeper cookbook! Made for Spring PAC 2010!
