      1. I served it with Roasted almonds and missed out on the poppy seeds. It was delicious. My Family loved it too, they wanted the recipe in the shelf. It was the first time I had ever tasted or made a strawberry salad, but it won’t be the last.

  1. I made this salad today for our Easter lunch, but because of the weather I couldn’t find any strawberries in Oklahoma so I used fresh blueberries and black berries and it was a hit! Thank you so much for your recipe. I will definitely be making this again, 

  2. Took this for a potluck at work and it was a HUGE hit! As you said, there were many requests for the recipe! It will be one of my go to recipes for sure! So good! Thank you!

  3. My family and I absolutely love this salad.  I made this as a side to your fettuccine Alfredo recipe.  Gotta say that these were winners in my house.  Going to make this salad for my lunch tomorrow. Thanks again!
