Poppy Seed Dressing

pastryparrot1's picture
This salad dressing is wonderful. It is a little tricky to make as you have to add the oil very, very slowly in order to keep it from separating. It goes excellent with garden and pasta salads.
Ingredients
  Sugar 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Poppy seeds 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)
  Salt 1 Tablespoon
  Dry mustard 1 Tablespoon
  Cider vinegar 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Oil 2 Cup (32 tbs)
  Mayonnaise 1 Tablespoon
Directions

MAKING
1. Mix the sugar, poppy seeds, salt and mustard in a bowl.
2. Whisk in the vinegar. Transfer to a handheld beater is you have one.
3. Add the oil very slowly beating for a few minutes after each addition. The secret to this recipe is adding the oil very slowly. This will keep it from separating. The whole process should take about 30 minutes.
4. Put the mayonnaise and mix well.

SERVING
5. Use this salad dressing with salad of choice or refrigerate for up to 2 weeks.
