This recipe is a tried and true favorite. Love this dressing and have made it many times. I always get a request for the recipe or to borrow the cookbook.
It comes from Richard Simmons' Never Say Diet Cookbook which I bought in 1982.
Poppy Seed Dressing:
Note in cookbook from Richard "my way of outdoing the Neiman Marcus specialty".
2 tablespoons dijon mustard
1 cup canola oil
1/3 to 1/2 cup red wine vinegar
2 tablespoon honey
2 tablespoons poppy seeds
1/4 cup grated red onion
Combine mustard,oil,vinegar and honey in a blender. Mix well.
Remove the dressing from the blender. Pour into a medium size jar or a small bowl.
Stir in poppy seeds and onion.
Store in a 16 ounce jar. It will separate and when it does just give it a few good shakes.
Use the amount of dressing you prefer.
