Lemon Poppyseed Dressing
1/2 c. white sugar 1/2 c. lemon juice
2 tsp. diced onion 1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. Dijon-style prepared mustard
2/3 c. vegetable oil 1 Tbs. poppy seeds
In a blender or food processor, combine sugar, lemon juice, onion, mustard and salt. Process until well blended. With machine still running add oil in a slow steady stream until mixture is thick and smooth. Add poppy seeds and process just a few seconds more to mix.
I like to serve this over a salad of mixed greens, romaine and spinach mostly, chopped apple, sliced pear, craisins, slivered almonds, grated swiss cheese, and crumbles of feta cheese. A little goes a long ways and it is a nice blend of sweet and savory! It makes it a lot easier to get in my servings of fruits and veggies!
