Poppy Seed Mandarin Salad

 Poppy Seed Mandarin Salad
Dried cranberries add color and cashews bring fun crunch to this pretty salad. “It’s great for a covered-dish dinner, but can also be served at luncheons with the girls,” writes Darlene Hoffman of Augusta, Georgia. “I like to serve it with crusty rolls.”
