1/4 cup diced red onion (or sweet vidalia or spanish onion)

3 to 4 tablespoons dried real bacon (real bacon bits)

1 cup slivered almonds, toasted

1/4 cup sunflower seeds (optional)

1 cup fresh chopped walnuts or pecans (optional)

1/4 cup grated white extra old cheese (optional)

Combine all ingredients above in medium sized bowl.

Dressing:

3 to 4 tablespoons sugar (or maple syrup)

1/2 cup mayonnaise

1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar

Whisk dressing ingredients together – pour over mixture in bowl. Stir.

Refrigerate at least 2 hrs to let flavour blend.

Great as a side dish!

For a meal:

add fully cooked chicken pieces, such as Lilydale brand, or Costco or PC’s Canned Chicken White Meat.

Variations:

For vegetarian option:

omit the bacon, cheese, use egg-less mayonnaise (Spectrum now makes).

Keep all the nuts, as it provides the “meaty” flavour, add a pinch of salt.

Let marinate overnight or for at least 2 hrs.

We find it’s perfect without the cheese, but is nice for something a little different.

This is one of our favourites!
