Poppyseed Salad Dressing

I love to make salad dressing from scratch. Don’t get me wrong… I have bottles of brand name salad dressings in my fridge, but when I stumble on a great “made from scratch” recipe, I add it to my collection. That’s how it is with this simple Poppyseed Salad Dressing.Poppyseed Salad Dressing / The Grateful Girl Cooks!

I found this recipe on Pinterest, and thought I’d give it a try pairing it with one of my favorite salads that I make often. Sure enough… it was FANTASTIC!  I love knowing the salad dressing is made without a lot of chemicals, but with common household ingredients! And guess what? This salad dressing is wonderful, and can be ready in just a couple minutes!

Here’s how you can make it, too!  Gather the ingredients: Apple Cider Vinegar, dry mustard powder, chopped red onion, salt, poppy seeds, sugar and oil.

Mix all the ingredients together really well, until the sugar has dissolved, and all ingredients have blended together. Pour into a covered bottle or serving container. Refrigerate until ready to use (the flavors really “marry” well, the longer you let it refrigerate).

I’m not kidding you… this stuff is GOOD!  I might have even taken a spoonful taste the day AFTER we had it on a salad, and oh boy… this one’s a keeper! My husband loved it, as well!

We used it on a mixed green salad (one of our faves) that has mixed greens, toasted almond slices, blueberries, strawberries, and feta cheese. Perfect! I will definitely make this again!
