Poppy Seed Salad Dressing

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by SeriousMoms

This is my mom's recipe. Try it on a salad of romaine lettuce with mandarin oranges and almonds! Or you could try it on a spinach salad with strawberries. It's a yummy dressing! Note that this is best if prepared in advance and refrigerated overnight.

Very nice dressing! Made exactly as directed. I actually just put a couple slices of onion plus everything else and used a hand blender to mix it all up. Thank you.
