From Connie Griffin at a Hope Lodge pot luck dinner. It is the best salad. Don't let the ingredients fool you like they did me. She is a great cook guys.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Sprinkle 2 tablespoons sugar into a nonstick skillet; stir constantly until sugar melts and coats almonds. Remove from heat when almonds are brown. Be careful because almonds burn easily.
  2. Mix together poppy seed dressing ingredients.
  3. Mix dressing with the salad ingredients; chill.

Made this today for our Father's Day cookout, and it was terrific. Everyone enjoyed. . . we finished every last bit. I toasted the almonds in a frying pan without using the sugar. Also used Splenda in the dressing and it was fine. Can't wait to make again.

Wow! Excellent and very easy! The perfect mix for a beautiful springy salad. I made the dressing the day before then tossed with the other ingredients right before Easter dinner. 16 oz of mixed baby salad greens is a LOT, so I'd increase the number of servings listed. Thanks for sharing the recipe!
