This recipe is a great favorite at our house. We use it on all of our garden salads because it blends so well with fresh fruits and vegetables. We enjoy sharing it with others, too, and have received many compliments on it. —Abigail Stauffer, Port Trevorton, Pennsylvania

"For oil, I like to use a blend of olive-canola-grapeseed (Mediterranean Oil at a big-box store); it's still fat but beneficial variety. For salt I use "salt sense" which is real salt but with 30% less sodium. This dressing is especially welcome for our hot weather salads."

"I love poppy seed dressing, but this has waaaay too much fat and sodium. I would be very interested in a makeover recipe."

"Poppy seed dressing is my favorite dressing for salad - whether fruit or vegetable. I will use this particular recipe to make my own rather than wait until we eat out. And I'm eager to use it on a mixture of blueberries and pears which we happen to have on hand today. Thanks for posting this!"

"Very good and really made my fruit salad more interesting! I added a splash of pear juice from the can though, and it added a bit of sweetness - thought it was too tart without it."
