Followed your ingredients right on down & used the poppy seed dressing for a wonderfully fresh & satisfying salad! Loved the combo of fruit & vegetables here & will certainly make it again! I especially look forward to making it sometime when we have special dinner guests! It would be a great hit, I know! Thanks for sharing it! [Tagged & made in Please Review My Recipe]

I made this salad on Easter Sunday, but forgot to review. It was loved by all the adults (but not so much the kids... they thought it was weird)! The only detour I made from the original recipe was that I used 3 bags of prepackaged mixed greens to replace the first three ingredients (to save time and hassle). I had a bag of frozen sliced strawberries so I thawed them to use. I love the kiwi in this salad. You added three of my favorite fruits to this refreshing and very colorful salad! I used my own Recipe #511115. I have this saved. Thanks for posting. (Made for PRMR)
