This was very tasty. Similar to another salad I make in the summer. This dressing I thought was better than using a premade poppy seed dressing. I cut the sugar to only 2 tbls and it was still plenty sweet. I added walnuts as well. Read More

Kinda of wish I'd liked this more. The dressing is good but not unique; as with other sweet mayo/red wine vinegar dressings I've tried I didn't even come close to using the called-for amount of sugar. (Normally I do try to follow recipes as written but I also know our tastes.) My husband and I agreed that we sort of wished there were something else in the salad but neither of us knew what; with such a creamy dressing cheese would be redundant and nuts didn't quite seem right. Cucumber maybe or apple? Anyway this is totally fine and made for a nice change but I doubt we'll make it again. Thanks anyway! Read More

This is great; I just made it for the second time for an Easter lunch. I do find it too sweet though so this time I've cut the sugar a little. My suggestion is to add the sugar last and do it to taste. Also if you don't have to have quite so many poppyseeds if you don't have them. 1 Tbs. would be plenty. Thanks for a great recipe! Read More

We LOVED this salad!!! I didn't have poppy seeds on hand. The dressing would've looked pretty with them in. Added some chopped pecans for crunch. Read More

Loved the dressing used 1/2 of the sugar called for and it is still very sweet. Read More

did everything as instructed with the exception of reducing the sugar to 1/4 cup and this was a wonderful salad! would have definitely been too sweet with more sugar. Read More

This salad is sooo good! Yes the dressing is sweet (which I love). I am going to use the leftover dressing on another salad (maybe with a little chicken) tonight. Thank you for this recipe! Read More
