Recipe Notes

* You can substitute 1/2 cup of raisins or dried cranberries for grapes if that is more your thing!

** I buy the bacon that is already cooked, but you can make your own- just let it cool before you add it to this salad.

*** Use your favorite nut instead of sunflower seeds. Cashews are one of my favorite additions to this salad!
