My daughter Gitel knows I’m always on the lookout for a new salad, so when she made this one, she brought me some to taste. I was hooked! The assortment of ingredients combined with a sweet/tart dressing make this colorful salad very appealing. The toasted sunflower seeds add just the right touch of crunch.
Blend dressing ingredients together with a whisk or stick blender until thoroughly combined.
You can use low-fat sour cream for a more dietetic version. I tried it with 9% sour cream and it was perfect. You can also use sugar substitute in place of the sugar.
Combine all salad ingredients in a large bowl and mix together.
Pour dressing over the salad and toss together. Adjust seasoning if necessary. Let marinate in fridge for one to two hours before serving. Garnish with sunflower seeds.
