Top Review by Sydney Mike

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]
