Ohyeah, the almonds totallyy make this! I liked this salad alot...and the poppyseed dressing, but I think a lighter, fruitier dressing would work as well.
Tastes like Summer! I got fresh strawberries at the Farmer's Market and used a lower fat dressing called Island Grove "Florida Orange Poppy" which was perfect. Don't skip toasting the almonds...they are delicious!
