"I thought this recipe was really good, the only reason I gave it 4 stars was because I like it less sweet and only used 1/2 cup of sugar to achieve was easy and will definitely make it again. I made a salad with mixed spring greens, cashews, craisins, chopped apples, and shredded swiss cheese with the dressing for New Year's eve and we loved it."

"I put all the ingredients (except poppy seeds) in the blender and it came out perfectly. Used it to dress fresh spinach, sliced strawberries, and homemade candied walnuts. It was a big hit at church--fresh and colorful."
