Poppy Seed Dressing- Guest Post

(note from JL- aren’t poppy flowers so pretty? )

Not being a big salad fan I almost didn't try this. I was glad I did, I ate 3 bowls! You can add apples, parmesan cheese & dried cranberries on top. I like at least the cheese & cranberries. I love this dressing & make it a lot in the summer. And anywhere you take it people will say "wow, that's a good salad!" Toss the dressing well with the lettuce & toppings. This does taste better with darker green lettuce, rather than iceberg. This recipe will fill a quart mason jar. I usually make half.
Ingredients:
1 cup sugar
3/4 cup rice vinegar
2 Tbs mustard
2 Tbs poppy seeds
1 medium red onion
1 pint corn oil
Directions:
Chop onion in very fine small pieces. I use my food processor and it kind of makes mushy onions but then the pieces are not big. Add all the ingredients to a blender & run for about 5 minutes on liquify. If the dressing starts to separate after a while, you can put it back in the blender for more mixing.
