Green Salad with Poppy Seed Dressing

 Green Salad with Poppy Seed Dressing
I like this salad because the dressing is easy to make and it provides a tangy blend of sweet and sour. There's always enough dressing left over for other meals, too. Colorful and refreshing, this green salad is a delightful addition to any menu!
