Creamy Poppy Seed Dressing | My Absolute Favorite Salad Dressing Ever!

Creamy Poppyseed Dressing

The weather is heating up and if you are like me, you find yourself eating more and more salads!  I have been making this salad dressing almost every week for over a year and it is hands-down my absolute favorite salad dressing that I make – even better than orange balsamic vinaigrette recipe!

A sweet and tangy blend of flavors, this creamy poppy seed dressing mixes up in just minutes.  This recipe will make enough dressing for about 8 or 9 salads (assuming you use about 2 Tbsp dressing per salad) and will keep nicely in the refrigerator for about a week (but it never lasts that long in my house – this recipe makes me WANT to eat more salads!)

Over time, I have been tweaking this recipe – it is really a variation of a homemade salad dressing that my friend makes.  Her recipe was very tasty but a little too sweet (she uses twice as much sugar and a little less cider vinegar).  I would add more poppy seeds if it were up to me…but then my husband complains about having to pick them out of his teeth!
