  1. Love the dressing! It is quite sweet and the strawberries are too, so this is a salad that kids would probably enjoy (especially if you used iceberg). I thought it could use more dressing and almonds for such a huge amount of lettuce.
  2. Excellent! I already had some lemon poppy seed dressing on hand but used the recipe for a perfect combination to pour it over. I used iceberg lettuce and my almonds were candied. Next time I will use this recipe for the dressing as well. Thanks for posting such a delightful recipe, Brooke the Cook in WI.
  3. This was delicious! The lemon zest was so good in it! The only change I made was to use sugar instead of Splenda (DH is a bit picky about it). We also didn't toast the almonds, but they were perfect as is. The veggies (and fruit) were all organic - I swear you can taste the difference! Thanks for the new and tasty addition to our salad repertoire! Made for PRMR Tag.
  4. I *loved* this salad! I don't care for onions so left them out. I used red wine vinegar as it's what I had on hand and the dressing was *perfect* with the lettuce, cukes, and strawberries. Terrific summer salad - thanks for sharing the recipe! Made for ZWT6, Zwizzle Chicks
  5. We really enjoyed the dressing as well as the salad, especially the combo of poppy seeds, almonds & strawberries! Will have to keep this colorfully different salad in mind when next we have company for dinner! Thanks for sharing the recipe! [Tagged & made in Please Review My Recipe]


<img src=> <br> <br>I have been a member of Zaar for awhile now and found that I love it! I have tried so many recipes and many new foods that I never would have without Zaar. <br> <br>I work full-time at a university in Wisconsin, it allows me to travel a bit and see the rest of the state, I work with a lot a great people and am really happy in my job. <br> <br>When I'm not working, I spend time with my hubby and 12 year old son. My son has picked up my love for cooking, a few of the things he makes are - naan bread, cookies, and quick breads, I'm so proud of him! In our family we also have two cocker spaniels, our puppy Laci (above) and Peanut, that we adore like they were our children. <br> <br>We live in an old farm house that we are remodeling (did the library and the kitchen so far....) on the outskirts of town. Close enough where my hubby can bike to work in the summer, but far enough away from campus that we don't have to lock down our lawn ornaments in fear of college pranks! <br><img src=> <br> <img src=> <img src=> <br><img src=> <br><img src=> <img src= border=0 alt=Photobucket> <img src=> <img src=> <img src=> <img src=> <img src=> <img src= border=0 alt=Photobucket> <img src=> <img src=> <img src= alt= Cilantro-May 2008> <img src=> <img src= border=0 alt=Photobucket> <img src= border=0 alt=Photobucket> <img src=> <img src= border=0 alt=Photobucket> <img src= border=0 alt=Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket> <img src= border=0 alt=Photobucket> <img src=> <img src=> <img src=> <img src=>
