I believe that it is so much better to make your own dressings. It’s better for you, cheaper and it tastes so much better than the bottled stuff at the stores.
This poppy seed dressing is one of my favorite dressings that I make. It is so good on just about any salad. You can use it on just a green salad, bean salad or even pasta salad.
The other great thing about this dressing is I usually have all the ingredients in my kitchen to make it. Sometimes you don’t decide until an hour before dinner time what to eat. It’s nice to be able to have the ingredients you need. I hate having to run to the store at rush hour.
We put this dressing on a green salad with tomatoes, avocado and nuts. It was so good. I ate just a small bowl of it. I had a shower to get to, and left dinner for my husband to eat when he got home. He loved it so much he ate almost all of it. How great it that? My husband even loved this dressing on the salad.
¾ c of white vinegar
1 ½ c vegetable oil
¾ c of sugar
1 ¼ t of salt
¾ t of dry mustard
1 ½ T poppy seeds
Place all ingredients in your salad dressing bottle. Shake well until all ingredients are mixed together. Refrigerate before using.
