Amazing Poppy Seed Salad

I love salad. It”s fresh and crisp and yummy. Not all salad is as good as others. Some are way to creamy. Others are way to cheesy. And some are just gross! My salads must have the perfect balance of sweetness and tang, when I’m feeling sugary. This poppy seed salad hits that very spot. It hits that “bull’s eye”.

This salad has a sweet, yet tangy, dressing that is balanced by the sweet cranberries and the tart Swiss cheese. It’s pure glory.
