Homemade Poppy Seed Dressing

This is my aunt Karen's recipe and the only modification I made was to substitute Florida Crystals less refined sugar or raw (turbinado) sugar for the regular sugar. (Note: This gives the dressing a light brown tint, instead of the pretty pink that the red wine vinegar gives it when using white sugar.) Only 7 ingredients, no preservatives, no artificial anything. Can't beat that! And it's yummy. 

It lasts well in the fridge for up to 2 weeks when I half the recipe, which is usually how long it takes my family to go through that much.

Homemade Poppy Seed Dressing

1 1/2 c. less refined (or raw) sugar
2 tsp. salt
2 tsp. dry mustard (scant)
2/3 c. red wine vinegar
3 T. onion juice (If you don't have onion juice--who does?--liquefy pieces of onion in blender. Or eliminate this altogether--which is what my children prefer.)
2 c. salad oil
3 T. poppy seeds

Mix together sugar, salt, mustard, and vinegar.

Add onion juice; blend.

Using blender (or immersion blender), blend salad oil slowly into mixture until thick. With a spoon, mix in poppy seeds.

Enjoy dribbled over your favorite salad!
