Spinach Salad With Poppy Seed Dressing Reviews

  • This recipe is great. I have made this for years although instead of mandarin oranges I use strawberries. Maybe next time I will try the oranges.

  • Im on my 3rd time making this right now and it has been a huge hit both previous times. I used pine nuts both times instead of almonds (just cuz thats what I had, I think the almonds will be better though) and it turned out great too. Im cutting the sugar a bit each time, but wanting to keep the vinegar balanced.

  • This was a terrific recipe My family loved it. I did make one modification though and used less vinegar. Everyone loved it. This will definitely be a repeat for me

  • We really liked this salad. I used fresh clementines instead of the mandarins and added mushrooms. I had quite a bit of dressing leftover, so ill cut it by 1/3 or so next time.

  • This is fantastic I used all spinach and I subbed walnuts for the almonds because of an almond allergy- I brought it to a party and everyone ate it- there wasnt anything left in the bowl

  • Ive made this recipe many times, I add strawberries as well and crumbled goat turns out excellent

  • Delicious salad. I used a whole bag of baby spinach; didnt have the salad greens. Added sliced strawberries along with the mandarin oranges. I used organic mayo from TJs instead of Miracle Whip, and added a dash of balsamic vinegar to the dressing.

  • This is a very nice, refreshing salad I used a mix of organic baby spinach and mixed baby greens. I used Hellmanns Light Mayo for the dressing. Update: I just added real bacon bits to the salad and it is sooo good (its what the salad was missing)

  • Oh, yummmmmm Really enjoyed this one. Added strawberries (kept the mandarin oranges) and chopped up some roasted almonds. Even "The Hubbs", whose reason for eating most veggies is "because their good for me", said "feel free to make this any time" Thanks for a great recipe

  • Love this recipe for the dressing Put it over any kind of salad and its delicious

  • Fresh and tasty, awesome salad

  • I am eating this for lunch right now and its delicious

  • I made this for a family dinner at my in-laws and it was a hit. I even had request for the recipe so this is a keeper. The only thing I changed was I used stawberries. Thanks for the recipe.

  • The dressing is very good. I use it on salads and crepes. It keeps really well in the fridge. It is very thin.

  • So simple, tasty and a hit Loved the creamy dressing and I used eggless mayo for those (like me) who are allergic. Yummy

  • I love this, Ive misplaced the recipe I used to have but I think this is it... Ive made it with iceburg and romaine, and kiwi, oranges and red onion. Ill add almonds next time, thanks, its a favorite :)

  • So extremely yummy - I didnt have any salad mix so I used all spinach (no nuts for allergy reasons), but my 5yo and 7yo ate it up. Now I just mix the dressing and keep it in the fridge and I just have it on plain spinach. Thanks for a yummy recipe Siobhan

  • Delicious I loved the dressing

  • Excellent - Ill definately make this again. I didnt have any red onion on hand. Like one reviewer suggested I added real Hormel bacon bits My husband wanted seconds

  • The dressing is the star of the show...we loved it We added wonton strips on the top of this for a little added crunch. So good

  • This is an easy, toss together in a hurry, salad. The sweet creamy dressing makes a delightful all-purpose salad dressing with just a few basic ingredients. You cant go wrong with this one.
