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!!!

This salad dressing is outstanding! As for the salad, I like a little more substance, so I added baby romaine and chopped spiced pecans. A wonderful combination that I will make again. Blue cheese was a wonderful addition.

This dish was such a hit that my discerning girlfriend, when she went back home to New Orleans, made it for her mother.

We are in the middle of strawberry and asparagus season in CA and I had both in my refrigerator when I came across this recipe, so I decided to try it. This was a delightful salad, even though I was a little leary of the combination. I did not have or use the blue cheese. We ate this with sweet and sour pork chops (using fresh pineapple.) The tastes couldn't have been better together!! Thanks for the new recipe! Can't wait to introduce it to friends.

Easy, make ahead recipe with tasty dressing. The bright contrasting colors look great on the table too. Wasn't sure about the combination of asparagus and strawberry but it works. This did make a lot of dressing. I added it just to coat (we don't like things swimming in dressing) and saved the rest for extra strawberries or another salad. I didn't use the blue cheese since we don't like it.
