    Add blueberries to this for extra punch and color. You can also create your own dressing by starting with a low cal poppy seed dressing, adding a couple of T of sugar free raspberry preserves and couple of T. of champagne Vinegar. I've also toasted pecans and sprinkled a few on top. - 7/18/09

  • I hate the taste of raspberry. Is there any other kind if dressing that will go with it? It looks yummy! - 2/24/11

    I've had people say poppyseed goes well. I'm sure any fruity or sweet & tangy dressing would go good. I've seen a strawberry vinigrette that looked like it would be awesome

  • I made this salad for a 4th of July picnic, it was a hit. I added some dried cranberries to this recipe and it was just what it needed some color and a bit of surprise. Just one suggestion, which I will do next time is add the dressing at the last minute before you serve. Very Good will make again. - 7/5/09

  • This was very good. I filled my plate with spinach (3 cups) and then topped it with 1/2 of the fruit mixture and a Tablespoon or dressing. For my friend I did the same to the amount of spinach she choose and added crumbled feta on top. Adds extra calories to her salad, but she liked it. - 6/27/09
