The only drawback is the dressing - instead of the mayo concoction - use Marzetti's white (not grey) Poppyseed dressing available at Farmer Jack's in the produce section. Mix in some of the mandarin orange juice to get it perfect. Also - you MUST add in sliced almonds and rice noodles. To make it a main dish - just add bowtie pasta and sliced breaded chicken breast.

I like the idea of adding strawberries to my salad but the dressing was a little too tangy. Next time I will use honey mustard and I bet it will be delicious! Read More

It was possibly one of the best salads Ive ever eaten. The one thing that I did change was by using fresh orange chunks as opposed to mandarin from a can. This was excellent. Read More

I changed it a bit- I only used Strawberries almonds feta cheese and lettuce - the poppy seed dressing is to your taste but absolutely wonderful and EASY! Even my kids eat the feta (and I usually hate it but it is good here). Read More
