    A staple at our house. Nice with spinach, too. I often add a few crumbles of goat cheese to add a bit of tang.

    So good.... and so good for you. Portion sie is too small. I went heavy on almonds and strawberries. Served with crab sandwiches for a picnic. This will be a summer favorite. I was out of white wine vinegar so I used red. It was great.

    Yum-o! This salad was super easy to make and so good, especially for summer! The dressing is not to sweet and is much better than any poppy seed dressing I have ever bought. We will be making this again!

    Excellent, refreshing salad. Made it many times for guests who always ask for the recipe!

    Very good but I cut the sugar in half and it was still plenty sweet.

    I had some blueberries in the fridge, so I added them to the recipe. After mixing up the dressing, I was concerned that it had too many poppy seeds, but I was mistaken...the dressing is absolutely spot on. This was the perfect complement to pork tenderloin diane, roasted onions with a drizzle of balsamic, and freshly-steamed green beans with lemon zest. This salad will be served often in this house, delicious.

    Very good. The dressing was a bit watery but otherwise was ood. I made around 1 & 3/ 4 amount (16-ish oz of lettuce) and it was about the right amount for 13 adults at a casual BBQ.

    A perfect summer salad for al fresco dining. My husband and I had this salad tonight with simple pan cooked salmon and brown rice. The salad stole the show. I made some minor tweaks - I sprinkled some sugar over the almond slivers while toasting, to give them a caramelized crunch. And I tossed in some thinly sliced Vidalia onion to cut through the overall sweetness of the salad. I would make again with these modifications. The dressing was superb - exactly what I was looking for.

    This salad dressing is so good. I use it on a different strawberry salad - one with cashews and swiss cheese. I use a third of the sugar and half the poppy seeds and it is perfect.

    Yummy, light, easy, and quick! I subbed 1 tbsp of Splenda for one of the three tbsp. of sugar and it was fine. Next time I will use all Splenda and reduce the amount of sweetener to 2 tbsp because it was pretty sweet. I also forgot the almonds which I sure would make it even better. I will definitely make this dressing again!
