This is my favorite salad in the summer and I love sitting on the patio at panera sipping on an iced green tea and enjoying this salad! I just had to find a way to copy it!

First the original salad dressing is dairy free, glutton free and fat free. It has no mayo and no milk in it at all. Panera lists the ingredients as For the dressing:**3 tablespoons cider vinegar.**2 tablespoons honey.**2 teaspoons Dijon mustard.**1 1/2 teaspoons poppy seeds.**1/4 teaspoon kosher salt.**Freshly ground black pepper.**3 tablespoons vegetable oil.**1/3 cup small-dice red onion (about 1/4 medium onion). Second the salad has no pineapple so therefore this is a poor copycat.
