Wonderful! So refreshing! I made this with our Thanksgiving meal and the family pulled this out first when foraging for leftovers! I prepared this at our lake house and had to make substitutions due to a lack of ingredients at hand...I reduced the oil and sugar when I added 1/2 cup honey mustard for a lack of dry mustard. I also added a teaspoon celery seed for lack of poppy seeds. Different but equally delicious!! This will be added to my collection of keepers!!! **** Re-reviewing this. I have made this as published and it is super! I have made this salad over and over again since I first tried it in 2002. It is a family tradition now :)

This was really good! I cut down on the sugar, though, and added a little more salt. I also put baby carrots in it.
