We LOVE this recipe! an absolute staple when having summer meals on hot days! The ingredients sound kind of disgusting all together but the taste is just incredible. However I cannot add the poppy seeds to it as it causes a positive reaction on military drug tests! Oops! Have a great week!

Michelle - We love it, too! I'm in the mood for warm weather ... and fresh salads (strawberries are beginning to show up in grocery stores here)!! Never gave a thought to the poppy seed issue though ... funny (or maybe not ... yikes!!).
