I make a dressing from lite mayo and lite miracle whip with stevia (added to taste) as my husband is a diabetic. The miracle whip eliminates the use of white vinegar and adds a "softer vinegar" taste to the recipe. I do use crisp, crumbled bacon, raisins OR cranraisins, and sunflower seeds as well. If you want a little crunch too, I have used chopped, well rinsed water chestnuts to the dish. My Mom has always requested this dish for our get togethers.

Really nice and tasty- much like the salads you get in the buffet lines at the soup and salad restaurants. I lightly toasted the sunflower seeds to bring out the nutty flavors- and I just like them that way.

I also add cauliflower and use splenda in place of real sugar as i'm diabetic and when I take it places no one ever knows the difference in taste. I add the raisins just before serving as it will darken the cauliflower. YUMMY dressing!

Everyone that I've served this salad to loves it! We often add shredded carrots to it.

Use coleslaw dressing instead.Cranberries or mixed dried fruit is better than the raisins.
