Honey Mustard Poppyseed Salad Dressing

Honey Mustard Poppyseed Salad Dressing recipeDo you make your own salad dressings? It takes just minutes to whisk a dressing together and I promise you it will taste at least ten times better than store-bought. A few years ago, I made my first salad dressing from scratch and I could hardly believe how simple it was!

What are your favorite dressings? Here are a few of mine that I make on a regular basis:

This Honey Mustard Poppyseed Salad Dressing is tangy, slightly tart, and sweet at the same time. I originally served this dressing with a Chicken and Black Bean Garden Salad. I've also served it with a simple salad of mixed greens, cucumbers and tomatoes. The dressing is delicious however you choose to serve it. Like most homemade dressings, it will keep well in the refrigerator for at least a couple weeks.
