How tired are you of the same old salad dressings from the store? Over-priced, filled with bad for you (and tasting) oils, or lack any flavor type dressing. Nothing like warmer weather that sets in the craving for delicious garden salad and it is up the dressing that can either have your taste buds dancing or drown it in a pile of hydrogenated oils. I am here to rescue your salads and taste buds with a series of fantastic, simple, and delicious salad dressings.
Honey Poppy Seed Dressing
1/4 cup of honey (preferably local. one of these days we'll get some bees of our own)
3 tablespoons of Cider Vinegar (or something fruity)
2 teaspoons of your favorite mustard
2 teaspoons of poppy seeds
1 small shallot or 2 tablespoons of minced onion
salt and pepper to taste
2 tablespoons of Olive Oil (preferably Extra Virgin, First Cold Press)
Whisk the honey, vinegar, and mustard together till thoroughly mixed.
Continue to whisk in the poppy seeds shallot/onion, and salt/pepper.
Lastly, whisk in the olive oil.
You'll probably want to double this recipe because it is sooo good.
tomorrow I'll post one that contains Maple Syrup ( I buy it by the gallon)
