Poppy Seed Salad Dressing


Do you buy your salad dressing from the store? Do you have any idea how easy and cheap it is to make your own? You can adjust any homemade recipe to your own taste and it will be fresh and without any additives!

My husband loves salads. The green pepper, yellow pepper and cherry tomatoes were picked fresh from our garden. He also loves poppy seed so I adapted this Poppy Seed Salad Dressing recipe from http://www.bettycrocker.com and it is fabulous! It is a thick, sweet & sour type salad dressing with so much flavor. It only takes a few minutes to make and one recipe doesnโ€™t make a lot which means it will be fresh! If you need more just double or triple the recipe.






In a medium bowl mix the sugar, vinegar, lemon juice, salt and mustard.



Using a mixer slowly add the oil, beating until thick and smooth.



Add the poppy seed stirring with a spoon.



Pour the salad dressing into a cruet, cover and

refrigerate for 2 hours or more.
