Creamy Poppyseed Dressing

This creamy sweet poppyseed dressing has had a regular home in our refrigerator for several years now. Sweet and slightly tangy, feel free to adjust the sugar and vinegar to taste. This is a pretty sweet dressing and I tend to use just a drizzle of it for a big salad. This recipe has completely replaced the poppyseed dressing that I faithfully bought for years and years. I truly love this dressing.

Here are some great salad ideas to get you started making the most of this dressing:

Stonefruit Salad
Grape and Candied Walnut Salad

  1. Beautiful! I think it's amazing how simple dishes can be so tasty and beautiful at the same time.

    Have a wonderful weekend.

  2. Yum! I'm going to use honey instead of sugar! MMMmmmm, good!

  3. Mayonnaise on fruit ??
    Surely that should be Yoghurt ?

    1. Mayonnaise is correct. It's very common in salad dressings. Enjoy!
