Looks good. I make a very similar salad and actually also put in about a cup of (sliced in half) red grapes. Thanks for your good recipes.

Meridian Meats says:

Yum! Sliced grapes are a great suggestion, we will have to try that!

pretty sure there’s bacon and sunflower seeds in that photo (and not in the recipe 🙂

I think bacon adds a really nice salt/smoke element to a salad like this.
