Poppyseed Mandarin Salad
Poppyseed Mandarin Salad is fantastic. This quick and easy salad uses just over a handful of ingredients. It’s a delicious side dish that can be whipped up in about 5 or 10 minutes. The combination of tastes from two different cheeses, dried cranberries and cashews along with a poppyseed dressing is delightful.
I made this tasty salad back in early May and served it with Easy Sausage Manicotti. I ate almost all of the salad! I let my husband get a bowlful but that was about it. 🙂 Both recipes were quick and easy and terrific for a weeknight dinner. One of the nice things about this salad is it uses a store bought poppyseed dressing. That makes it even easier to have table ready.
Poppyseed Mandarin Salad has the savory flavors of Swiss and Cheddar Cheeses and cashew nuts. But those flavors are delicately balanced with the sweet flavors of dried cranberries, mandarin orange segments and the poppyseed dressing. The combination is utterly irresistible.
If you enjoy tossed salads with fruit, this one is a dandy. I couldn’t stay out of it. 🙂
