Great salad, though I'm personally not thrilled with poppy seed dressing. Loved the mix of flavors and colors in this salad. Thanks for posting Linky. Made for Spring PAC 2010!

This is a very nice and fresh-tasting spinach salad! I love the combo of the carrots and kiwi and the almonds added a nice crunch. I don't care for onions so left them out, otherwise made as directed. I used the full 2T of dressing and will use less next time. Thanks for posting this yummy recipe! Made for Spring PAC 2009
