Grape and Avocado Salad with Poppyseed Dressing

What fruit do you use for this salad recipe?

Grapes. I use dark purple grapes for salads because they are sweeter than green grapes. You can also use black grapes.

Oranges. For the oranges, we only buy the mandarin oranges because they are a bit sweeter. You can either use mandarin oranges or you can use regular oranges.

What kind of dressing is used?

Our homemade poppy seed dressing is used. It is an easy recipe that you can put together in just a few minutes.

If you have a favorite brand, you can use that instead. This salad goes best with a vinegar-based dressing though, not a creamy salad dressing.

Sometimes I put the bean sprouts in the salad and sometimes I don't. They are optional.

If you want to leave them out you can since they are only really included in the salad to give it an extra crunch.
