My favorite commercial salad dressing is Brianna's Rich Poppy Seed Dressing. It is seriously to die for. Unfortunately, the price makes it a bit prohibitive for me to have it on a regular basis with as fast as we go through it.
So therefore, I give you my version of Brianna's Poppy Seed Dressing for your dining pleasure. It's not exactly like the original, but close enough to please most. :) recipe for brianna's poppy seed dressing
Suz's Sweet Poppy Seed Dressingrecipe
1/2 cup mayonnaise
5 Tbsp. granulated sugar
1/8 cup sweet white onion
2 tsp. white vinegar
1 1/2 tsp. apple cider vinegar
1/4 tsp. lemon juice
1 Tbsp. water
1/2 tsp. ground mustard
1/4 to 1/2 tsp. poppy seeds
1/4 cup canola oil
Put everything in your blender, except the poppy seeds and the canola oil. Process until the onion has been liquified. On the lowest speed of the blender, pour in the canola oil and the poppy seeds. Refrigerate and enjoy!
I highly suggest Bragg's Apple Cider Vinegar, if you don't have it already. You can find it at some grocery stores, and just about all health food stores. You can also substitute agave or your sweetener of choice for the sugar, if you'd like. If you do use a liquid sweetener, omit the water.
My favorite salad to serve poppy seed dressing over:
Granny Smith apples, diced
Dried cranberries (I prefer fruit sweetened)
