Rated as 4.59 out of 5 Stars

"Along with crunchy cashews and strips of Swiss cheese, a sweet-and-tangy poppy seed dressing makes this tossed salad something special. There are seldom any leftovers when I serve it! -DiAnne Mallehan, Grand Rapids, Michigan"

LOVED this. Take the dressing up a notch: use red wine vinegar, Dijon mustard, and red onion. Using bagged Romaine keeps it super-easy. Lots of requests for the recipe.

This recipe is just plain fun! Change it up a little with fresh blueberries, strawberries or orange slices! Used toasted or candied pecans, sunflower seeds, or ramen noodles! Toss on some cho...
