    15 minutes

    This is my favourite salad to make in summer. The sunflower seeds add a wonderful texture, as do the avocadoes.

    Great salad. I added sliced tomatoes and red onion to it. And I left the dressing on the side because my daughter would rather put ranch dressing on it. I served this with Chrismas dinner and the entire salad was gone.  -  26 Dec 2002  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
