This is delicious even without the poppy seeds (dietary restriction). I used my immersion blender to complete this yummy dressing! Thanks, Lisa.

I make this salad dressing - only 3X's the recipe about every 2 - 3 weeks...we eat a LOT of salad!! I got the recipe from "Winter Fruit Salad with Poppyseed Dressing " here on AR. Over the months of making it I did some healthier changes for us. I now use FRESH squeezed lemons (takes time - but worth it) I split the oils between Olive & Canola - half sugar and half Stevia. You would think we'd get sick of eating this - but its the BEST!! In our salad we use: Romaine - spinach - kale - grapes - pumpkin seeds - broccoli - cauliflower - peppers - sometimes onions - for a protein we use chicken....but our latest and new favorite is using "Red Sockeye Salmon" from the can. I crave this salad if I go one night without it.....can't get much healthier.

Love this dressing. Just the right amount of sweet and sour. Subbed onion powder for fresh onion.
