Poppy Seed Salad Dressing Recipe


Poppy Seed Salad Dressing has a wonderful balance of both sweet and tangy.  This is the absolute best poppy seed dressing you have every tasted!  This is my husband’s favorite.  I like using rice vinegar, instead of regular vinegar, in this salad dressing as it it more milder, more mellow, and a little bit sweet.

This recipe is so easy to make as it takes only minutes to make.  I seem to use this salad dressing a lot of the time as it goes great on so many different types of salads.  Once you start making your own salad dressings, it is hard to go back to store bought.
