I do demo's in stores, I made this salad with the chicken strips and the kraft bottled poppyseed dressing. No, almonds. It was a very big hit, and everyone that tried it loved it and wanted the recipe. It is also very good using the catalina dressing. It is so simple to make. Many planned on making this for special dinners and pot luck type dinners. Everyone was gald to find something different to take to family and friend gatherings.
