It’s spring and our garden if full of lovely lettuce, radish and onions. Of course, we eat lots of salad this time of the year, so as I make homemade salad dressings I’ll be sure to keep you updated with the recipes.
We eat lots of Italian Dressing (oil/vinegar base) but sometimes it’s nice to have something a little different and sweeter .. What’s better than a Poppy Seed Dressing on delicate spring lettuce – especially in a few weeks when you can toss in a handful of fresh picked ripe strawberries!
3/4 c Honey, Preferably Local and Raw
1/3c Apple Cider Vinegar (I only use Braggs’ Raw Organic Apple Cider Vinegar!)
1/8c Onion, Chopped (I used 5 freshly foraged Ramp Bulbs!! Shallots or scallions would be good too!)
3t Ground Mustard
1t Poppy Seeds
1/2t Sea Salt
1c Organic Olive Oil
Put everything in your blender and blend till smooth!! It’s super yummy, while I’ve been writing this post – you know I keep “tasting” the dressing out of the bottle.. I’m counting down till dinner to have another big salad!
