When I first made this dressing, I was really amazed at how much better it tasted than store bought, and how insanely easy it was to make; so when I came across a chicken past salad recipe calling for lemon-poppy seed dressing, there was no way I was gonna buy a jar.
I never actually got around to making that salad – but I had some toasted pecans, strawberries, and bag o’ spinach hanging around, and they were perfect with this little bit of dressing heaven.
Combine the sugar, lemon juice, onion, Dijon mustard, and salt in a blender and give ’em a good whizzz to really mince that onion and combine everything else.
Add the poppy seeds and give the blender another quick whizzz to combine.
Dressing done! And how nice on a salad of spinach, English cucumber, red onion, strawberries, and toasted pecans? Or, you could go with the classic Winter Fruit Salad, which is also very nice.
Either way – this dressing is a winner!
