Teriyaki Chicken Salad with Poppy Seed Dressing

I’ve made this salad so often and shared it with many people. It’s originally from my good friend’s daughter, and we always receive compliments on how wonderful the light fruit flavors come alive with the poppy seed dressing. —Cathleen Leonard, Woodbridge, California

    This is a great salad. Makes a whole meal. I cut out the celery because not everyone in the house likes it, but it doesn't need it anyway. I used Brianna's Poppy Seed Dressing. I will be making this salad for years to come. Although the ingredients seem odd together, your taste buds will thank you for giving this recipe a shot.

    disappointed to see no recipe for the marinade or the dressing...just lettuce and a bunch of fruit.

    I take my time cooking so it took me a while, but this was an excellent dish and everyone loved it.For dressing I used the poppy seed dressing from the festive tossed salad recipe on this site and it turned out great.

    Absolutely amazing! One of the best salads I've had in my life!!! We used fresh pineapple and blackberries instead of raspberries. So healthy and refreshing. I'll make it over and over. Such a wonderful mix of ingredients.

    What a shame you didn't include the Poppy Seed Dressing listed in the title of the recipe.
