This salad was really good - of course it was mainly due to the dressing! I have to admit though I subbed olive oil because we don't have grapeseed oil and I only used half the amount. I think using a half cup of oil would have actually made it way too oily. It wasn't until later that I realized I left out the carrots too but it was still excellent without. I decreased poppy seeds to 2 teaspoons instead of tablespoons and think that was just enough too. A thought on the apples - if you don't plan to serve the salad immediately and put the dressing on the salad right away you might want to shake them with some lemon juice ahead of time to keep them from turning brown.

This salad is awesome especially the dressing. I used pomegranate instead of blueberries to make it more festive for a Christmas Eve get-together and everyone loved it. I also toasted the walnuts. Read More

Great idea for a salad. I was trying to find a salad for a party. This was perfect I substituted what I had on hand. Spring salad mix strawberries almonds and no cheese. Much more exciting than the spinach and strawberry salad I first planned. This salad has inspired me. Read More

Great salad dressing. I only had lettuce tomatoes apples & carrots so I used that. Also I didn't have feta cheese but I had some sliced emek cheese to use up. I just cut it up and added to the salad. Made for a very tasty and different salad. Read More

This is very good. Lots of chopping but well worth the effort. Only substituted toasted almond slivers for the walnuts because of personal preference. Read More
