Here's a recipe for poppy seed dressing. I pour it over a salad made with lettuce, chopped green onions, pecans that have been toasted with some sugar, and either mandarin oranges or sliced strawberries.
Poppy Seed Dressing
1/2 c. sugar
1/4 c. honey
1/3 c vinegar
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 teaspoon dry mustard
1/2 teaspoon salt (or to taste)
1 c. vegetable oil
2 tablespoons poppy seeds
Place the sugar, honey, lemon juice, vinegar, dry mustard, and salt in a blender or food processor. Mix well. With the blender or food processor running, slowly pour the oil in a thin stream into the mix so that the dressing emulsifies. Once the oil has been blended in, turn off the blender/processor. Fold in the poppy seeds with a spoon, and pour over the salad.
