This salad is like no other. I "threw" it together one day, using what I had in the refrigerator/pantry. I didn't realizing how big of a hit it would become. I am constantly asked to make it, no matter what the occasion. This salad will go nicely with any sort of meal. I've experimented with other Poppy seed dressings, but Brianna's is the best tasting. I would not recommend using any other dressing for this salad! Enjoy!
