"It was really good. My husband even liked it. I just bought poppy seed dressing."
"I really like this recipe. My husband is diabetic, so I don't use the sugar. We like the almonds sprinkled on the salad without the additional sweetness."
"Very good recipe and very easy to make. My husband didn't think he was going to like it but loved it. Great summer salad and perfect dressing to go with it."
"This was a delicious salad. Similar to a few other reviewers, I just used the almonds as is, and didn't add any additional sugar. I'm sure it would be delicious, but combined with the sweetness of the strawberries I thought it might be too much. Absolutely wonderful dressing. I didn't change a thing there."
"This salad tastes like summer - I love it! I sometimes throw in baby spinach along with the romaine. Also, I just toast the almonds instead of using the extra sugar."
