Isn't this the best salad? My dad has been making it since I was little... neat to find it here on your list of faves! When strawberries are in season, I use the same recipe but sub the sliced strawberries for mandarins. I use walnuts in place of the almonds and poppyseeds in the dressing instead of the parsley. :o)

I just bookmarked this site. I see several things I know I would like and that my family would too!

I think we'll be having this salad this week, in fact!

I came here from Dawn's site.

Hi Dawn. Are you still out there? I read Seventeenth Summer every summer. I married my high school sweetheart and truly believe Angie and Jack shaped my image of romantic forever-after love. Thank you for appreciating Maureen Daly. Lori
