Poppy Seed Dressing

A favorite for many people, this recipe has smooth flavor!

Many years ago I visited a friend, Judith,  and she served me a salad made of what I thought to be unusual and unexpected ingredients. It was delicious and is standard fare at Moonmooring. I call this salad and dressing my house salad.

Looking down into the blender.

The Dressing

Place these ingredients into a blender;

1/4  medium white onion *see below*
3/4 C.  olive oil
1/4 C.  cider vinegar
1/2 C.  sugar
3/4 tsp.  salt
1/2 tsp.  dry mustard
Blend till smooth and creamy looking. Then add;

1 tsp.  Poppy seeds

Blend just enough to incorporate.

*Note* A white onion will make an off white creamy dressing
A red onion will create a pink dressing
Use garden fresh green onions for a beautiful light green dressing

Serve this dressing over the following salad ingredients;

The Salad

1/4 head loose iceberg lettuce, broken into large bite size pieces
8-10 sections of ruby-red grapefruit
1/4 C. broken walnuts or pecans
1/4  avocado, sliced, optional and my own addition to this marvelous salad

Pour about 2 Tbls. of the dressing over this and serve. Yummy!!
