Hi Everyone - This is my recipe. Onion juice can be found at most grocery stores. You can find it in the spice aisle. DO NOT USE immitation onion juice - it makes a difference. (I've never tried making my own onion juice, but I'll look forward to others that try it and post results - see editor's note.) This recipe makes a lot of dressing. You can refrigerate the left-over dressing for a long time to have on-hand. Enjoy!
I have a recipe similar to this! Mine doesn't use the onion juice and that's what it was missing! So good! thanks for the recipe!
This salad dressing is fantastic! Better than any poppyseed salad dressing I have ever had. Had to go to two stores for the onion juice, but it was worth it.
WOW..very good dressing, I used a Blendtec blender on the dressing button to make this dressing, and pulsed in the poppy seeds at the end and it came out perfectly emulsified and creamy..I used 1/2 Sugar and 1/2 Splenda..I used it for a slaw recipe of cabbage, carrots and raisins...I can't wait to try on a spinach salad..yum...also followed editors note and made my own onion juice (I pureed 1/2 a med onion in a mini chopper and pressed thru a fine strainer)
Served over a spincach/romaine lettuce I tossed with mandarin oranges, small fresh pinapple chunks, blueberries and sliced almonds... DELICIOUS!
Really good dressing! It is quite sweet but goes well with all different greens. Thanks for this recipe!
The BEST Poppyseed Salad Dressing EVER! Made as directed.
Yummy, thank you for sharing the recipe. Missed the part about how to make onion juice the first time around so we will try that in the future. We used sesame seeds because I didn't have poppy seeds. It was still nice but I'm sure it tastes fantastic with poppy seeds. Since we've been living in TZ the past 3 years and eating less processed foods, I find I have to cut the sugar in EVERYTHING because our taste buds have changed. This recipe was no exception.
