We really enjoyed this salad. I made it twice. The first time I used a honey mustard - that did not work well. The second time I used Hickory Farms' Sweet-Hot mustard in the dressing. It turned out very good!! I thought the sunflower seeds were a nice addition to this salad, also.

A very good light salad. I used pine nuts insted of the sunflower seeds. To our taste the dressing was too sweet. I ended up using equal amounts rice wine vinegar and honey and also added a teaspoon of extra mustard.
