Turkey & Ham Chopped Salad with Creamy Poppy Seed Dressing

This Turkey & Ham Chopped Salad with Creamy Poppy Seed Dressing is not only quick to make, it's loved by everyone!

This salad is perfect for those who don't enjoy salad. It's creamy and full of cheese and deli meat. Add whatever else your family likes - chopped, seeded tomatoes, sunflower seeds, chopped bell peppers... 

The Creamy Poppy Seed Dressing is delicious for almost any salad. A spinach salad with strawberries and goat cheese would be complimented very well. I wouldn't say it's the healthiest dressing because of the mayo but if you use a mayo with basic ingredients, I think the creaminess is worth it. Of course, if you prefer you can use all greek yogurt but you may have to adjust the seasonings.
