Lemon Poppyseed Dressing

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!

What a delicious dressing! I have been making a Sweet Cabbage and Kale Salad with it on it. YUM!
