This was my first time buying poppy seeds! I didn't even know where to find them! They were right in the spice aisle, not hard to find at all.
I've seen a ton of recipes with poppy seeds but just haven't taken the leap.
Chicken salad is my true love so when I saw this, I knew I had to try it! So glad I did because it is awesome!!
I think that she used less chicken as this was not super goopy. It could have used a bit more dressing but it was fine so I left it. I ate way too much of this, it was super good! I plan to make it again soon!
