  1. I just love this salad and have made it many times for potlucks. Everyone always loves it! Question though… does the dressing need to be refrigerated? I make it ahead of time so it’s ready to go when I put it all together but it’s super thick if I leave it in the fridge.

    Thanks!!

  2. I made this for our New Year party. A huge bowl of salad disappeared in a moment. The dressing is really “to die for”! I didn’t have poppy seeds, so I used black and white sesame seeds instead. I also added some feta cheese and thinly sliced red onions. But dressing is the king of this salad! Making it again today with pears instead of strawberries. Thank you!

  3. I make this for most special occasions and events. The only difference is that i use my favorite poppy seed dressing off the shelf at the store and a bit of feta cheese crumbles. Yummy!!!
