This is one of our favorite salad recipes. The combination of Romaine lettuce, toasted pecans, and fresh strawberries is unusual, but sooo good.

My family loves this recipe - even my kids who don't like salads very much. I use cucumbers instead of the red pepper and skip the poppy seeds. This is an awesome summer salad! Read More

Excellent! I definitely wouldn't use Fat Free Miracle Whip though. I used reduced fat M.W. and it still tasted a bit 'off'. In fact I'd be inclined to use a bottled poppyseed dressing and this would still be really delicious. It was a huge hit at the office potluck! Read More

This salad is awesome! It is perfect with your summer meals. My kids did not want to try it but the skeptical adults enjoyed it. Next time I will cut this recipe in half. Read More

Delicious! Used toasted walnuts and sunflower seeds green pepper instead of red. For the dressing I used brown sugar and red wine vinegar. It was a hit with my husband as well. Read More

Wonderful refreshing change from the ordinary salad! I've been looking for this recipe for quite some time now. However I left out the onions and peppers and used sliced almonds instead of pecans. And since it is out of season I used mandarin oranges instead of strawberries. Read More
