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.

This was great summer salad! I skipped the lettuce and added some snap peas, craisins, and red onion. It was yummy, light & refreshing!
