Lite Fruit Salad With Honey Poppy Seed Dressing by Paula Deen

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Mad-catter

Another recipe from her cooking show. I found it made more dressing than I had salad for and it was a little on the sweet side so next time I'll add more salad ingredients and cut down on the honey, and I suppose you could even reserve the juice from the can of mandarin oranges and use that for the orange juice in the dressing.

Excellent combination - better than the sum of the parts! I used the other reviewers' suggestions and used the juice from the mandarin orange can, with blood orange-flavored olive oil instead of canola. Super good - kids would probably like this!
