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 p...

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 ...

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.

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

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.

OUTSTANDING! You wouldn't expect the flavors to blend,but when I made this, everyone wanted the recipe!!

I was surprised how good this was, and the dressing was good as well.

The best salad ever!!!! I always make this for bbq's and it's always gone.

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 ...
