A Sweet Recipe

In my last post, I wrote about my adventures to the Quad Cities, but I failed to mention one worthwhile discovery: my forever friend's mom's homemade poppy seed salad dressing. It was sweet and delicious, and actually made me want to eat more salad (so you know it's gotta be good!). So, I asked for the recipe and have included it at the bottom.

This is how it turned out. Note the cute dollar-store glass bottle shaped like a bee hive. It makes me smile, since one of the dressing's main ingredients is honey. How sweet.

Poppy Seed Dressing

1/3 cup honey

2 tbl. cider vinegar

1 tbl. yellow mustard

1/2 tsp. onion powder

1/2 tsp. salt

3/4 c. salad oil (I used canola...)

2 tsp. poppy seeds

Everytime I bring this to a potlatch I have to give out the recipe. It originally came from your forever friend's piano teacher. It is so tasty.
