    Tinks599's Note:

    This salad is one I've made for years. It is quick, easy, includes just the right dressing and if you add some chunked chicken, you go from a very nice (fancy) side salad to a great main dish!!

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Make your dressing first:.
    2. 2
      Add equal parts yogurt, mayonnaise and mix well.
    3. 3
      Add the honey and mix inches Adjust this to your tastes. It is generally lightly sweet and rounds out the flavors of the mayo and yogurt.
    4. 4
      Add the poppy seeds, mix in (if you don't have seeds, don't sweat it, they give a bit of texture but I have wanted this salad and run out and it is fine without it -- )
    5. 5
      Salad:
    6. 6
      Either mix the spinach, sliced water chestnuts and mandarin oranges, or make this directly on the plate. I usually break the water chestnuts because about a 1/2 slice and one mandarin orange plus a fork full of spinach leaves seems to be about perfect.
    7. 7
      Top with the dressing.
    8. 8
      See! Isn't that easy? Five minutes!

      This is just wonderful. The dressing is to die for...I tripled it so I could have some to make salads all week, but everyone loved it so much they all took a bottle home with them...Now I have to make some more....
