This is a wonderful salad. The sweetness of the poppy seed dressing and fresh berries really makes a winning combination. The ingredients were prepared and chilled in the refrigerator while the rest of dinner was cooking. Not having the blue cheese, I substituted feta with great success. This would be a wonderful salad for summer cookouts.

My DH is very anit-strawberries in salads, so I made this using halved grape tomatoes instead--and it was still great!!! Wonderful dressing and great flavor combination! (My other substitute was to use a couple of dashes of onion powder in place of the grated onion.) This is definitely a keeper and would be great for a potluck! Thank you!!!
