For this salad use whatever fruit is fresh and ripe. If peaches are not in season, try using melons or oranges. Nectarines are also delicious in this recipe.

This is very good! I didn't have poppyseed dressing though so I used Raspberry Walnut from Paul Newman. My husband missed out because he really likes the combination of meat and fruit. Read More

I've tried this recipe before and it's a good one. However it's from the Epicurious.com website and was published in Bon Appetit in 1994. Boo on the poster who didn't give credit where credit is due! Read More

Very tasty salad. I used a rotisserie chicken and it ended up being too overpowering so stick with regular cooked chicken. The poppy seed dressing with the peaches tasted great. Read More

Excellent salad. My husband and I both thoroughly enjoyed it. The lemon poppyseed dressing tasted wonderful with the tangy taste of peaches. Peaches can also be replaced with nectarines. Read More
