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.
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;
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!!
