    Cathy17's Note:

    This is a wonderful and refreshing salad that I got from Best of Bridge. I played around with it a bit and added a few other fresh fruits to it. This is yummy and great to offset a very rich main dish, such as my Death to Dieter's Lasagna.

      This was just outstanding. My husband is on a soup/salad diet, so I am casting about for new recipes, and this is a keeper. Not only was it delicious, it was a delight to the eye as well. I left out the sesame seed and used fresh oranges because that is what we had on hand. Thank you!

      This was an elegant salad, with wonderful taste & eye appeal. I added blueberries, cut the kiwi into slices & then quartered each slice, & used only 2 T poppy seeds. I served this at a bridal shower & received many compliments. This is a great recipe that I will make again.

      100% terrific! I love the zing in the salad dressing using the juice from the oranges and the vinegar. The only slight change was I used fresh mandarin oranges and then used 2 tsp of fresh squeezed orange juice for the dressing. Fabulous and very healthy salad which I used as my lunch instead of as a side dish.
