Poppy Seed Dressing III

Recipe by  

"This is the dressing everyone begs for when I make salads. My mom's best friend always served it over a bed of romaine with strawberries and Vidalia onions. It is kind of thin, but I like it that way since you really only need a little bit."

I am a weight watcher so I used light Mayo and 1% milk and it was still very good. This is a keeper in my opinion!

I have used this dressing for a few years now and my family raves about it. I use it on macaroni salad, spinach salad, and cole slaw. It is just the right amount of sweet/tart and is always a hit!

I was looking for a creamy poppy seed dressing and this one was perfect! Thank you for the recipe! It will definitely be a staple around our house. :)

Yummy dressing and at a fraction of the cost of the bottled stuff. So easy to make! Thanks for the great recipe, paralee!! I substituted Splenda for the sugar (two diabetics in the house)and rice vinegar for the wine vinegar and served it with a spinach and strawberry salad.

I have been looking for the perfect dressing for a chicken and strawberry salad and this is it. Finally! I have purchased every poppy seed dressing or dry mix for years only to be disappointed by the overpowering flavour of raw onions and the presence of odd ingredients like dried flowers or Worcestershire sauce. I made this recipe with skim milk and substituted two tablespoons of the sugar for honey because I love the honey and mayo combo in dressings. Thanks for posting paralee; I know this will become a regular in my house. Yummy!

Delicious! I am tired of store bought bottled dressings and I was looking for a simple poppy seed dressing to make with things on hand- this was it! I scaled back the recipe to only 4 servings. I used lowfat/light mayo, 1% milk, and cider vinegar (no white wine vinegar). I used the dressing on a mixed spinach, lettuce salad with strawberries, left over roaster chicken, feta cheese, and almonds- I kept telling my husband this is the best salad I ever ate...Definitely I will make this one again.

Fast and fab. I cut the sugar down to 1/2 cup, which may have made it a little thinner, but love it.
