Signature Salad

Lemon Poppyseed Salad


This is my Signature Salad.

My go-to favorite for any occasion.


It is perfect for parties, showers, picnics, pot-lucks, BBQs,

supper side dish, brunch, dinner delivery or any other event!

I love this salad because the presentation is always beautiful.
The combination of sweet and tangy is delightful!

  5. Hi Concetta,
    This salad is awesome and I love the lemon and poppy seed dressing. It is the time of the year when I could just live on salad yum! Thank you so much for sharing with Full Plate Thursday and hope to see you next week!

  6. This looks delicious and my husband is a big salad eater so I will definitely have to try this one. Thanks for sharing! (I follow and stop by time to time; please stop by...we have a brand new look :-)

  7. Just hopped on here through Esther's link. My husband is hosting three days of meetings at our home and I am doing the food. This salad just went right to the top of my list, to be included. Thanks so much.

  9. Concetta, our son is getting older and is now loving salads and requesting them for lunch and dinner. I've been making a few different ones for variety to make sure he keeps on loving them as they are so healthy. Thank you for sharing your signature salad with Vintage Recipe Thursday. I'll be adding it to my repertoire. :-)

    Can't wait for your trifle on Monday too. Isn't Pinterest fabulous? I'm a very visual person, and I find that website so useful. Looking forward to "pinning" each other lots and lots of times, although that sounds a lot more painful than it should. LOL. Have a great day!


Please leave a comment on my Blog of Life ~ I love hearing from you!


The Kitchenettes ~ A Hospitality Club

Romans 12:13
Pursue the practice of hospitality.

The Kitchenettes is all about teaching and mentoring young girls in the art of hospitality. It is so much more than cooking or doing domestic tasks ~ hospitality is the very heart of God ~ a demonstration of pouring His love onto others. This group of young girls are learning the very nature and character of God as they serve people and sharpen their skills in homemaking.
