A Better Poppy Seed Dressing

Less sugar!

Better tasting vinegar!

Turmeric, because!

This sweet and tangy dressing is, of course, pretty terrific on salad and coleslaw, but, one of my brothers-in-law maintains it to be fine on air fried turkey breast!

That’s a lot of uses for one small-ish jar of home made salad dressing.

Good thing it is also a snap to toss together!

I made mine using my immersion blender, but a regular blender, or, heck, even a wire whisk will yield you  a perfectly lovely salad dressing/sauce in well under ten minutes.

•1 cup mayonnaise
•2 tbsp sugar
•1/2 tsp onion powder
•1/3 cup seasoned rice vinegar
•1 tsp celery seed
•2 tsp poppy seed
•1/2 tsp Aleppo pepper
•1/4 tsp turmeric
•1/4 tsp garlic powder
•1/4 tsp Seasoned Salt

Add all of the ingredients to a beaker, blender jar, or mixing bowl and blend or whisk until nicely combined and smooth.

See? Easy peasy! Transfer the dressing to a lidded jar and stash in the fridge for a few hours to allow the flavors to really get to know one another.

Or don’t; ad just use the dressing immediately, it is still very, very good.

Note: if you think this could be a bit sweeter, by all means, go ahead and add another two tablespoons of sugar and stir well, but I think it works nicely as is.

Especially when tossed with a bag of coleslaw mix and one tablespoon of my new fave French dressing.
