Lemon Poppyseed Dressing

With all of the healthy veggies we've been harvesting, we've been doing a lot of salad dressing experiments.  Salad dressings are so easy to make, there is no excuse to buy the preservative/man-made chemical loaded versions from the store. This is one of the family's absolute favorite salad dressings.  Toss it up with some fresh lettuce, spinach, nuts or seeds, dried or fresh fruit and enjoy!  We even add some chicken, pan-seared fish or shrimp to make it a meal.


2/3 c. Olive Oil (I use organic extra virgin)
1/3 c. Fresh Squeezed Lemon Juice
1/4 c. Tbsp Raw, Local Honey (use less if you prefer)
1 Tbsp Dijon Mustard (use organic if it's available)
1 Tbsp Poppyseeds
1 Tsp Salt
Pepper to taste

Put all ingredients in a jar and shake well.

Tip:  Add 1/4 c. homemade mayo for a creamy dressing.  I will be posting the recipe for mayo soon
