Raw Honey Poppy Seed Dressing Ingredients
This is a very simple dressing that allows you to use the best organic and local ingredients you can find. If you find a great source for organic onions, or you grow them yourself, be sure to dehydrate them in bulk so that you can grind them into your own healthy onion powder or onion flakes. Grow Poppies and collect the seeds yourself. It’s all part of being connected to your place, and it’s fun for your soul.
Making poppy seed dressing couldn’t be easier. Simply add all the ingredients, except for the oil, to a blender. While they are blending, slowly pour the oil in a steady stream. Turn off the blender as soon as the oil is in. This is how you create an emulsion. It won’t work if you just add it all together at once. If you have ever made mayonnaise, you’ve used this method.
If you don’t want an emulsified dressing, and like to use a shaker jar, then just put it all together at once and shake before each use. It still tastes delicious, but has a different look and mouth feel.
You can easily double or triple this recipe to make more. Just use your math skills and rejoice in knowing how to add fractions! Make life fun
