All of my favorite salads are topped off with this homemade dressing. I use this sweet poppy seed concoction to drizzle over fruit salads with strawberries, grapes, oranges and bananas...or over spinach and toasted pecans.
This quick and easy salad dressing is great on all kinds of salads. It’s sweet, tangy and oniony, and doesn’t separate. You can make it ahead of time and store in the fridge.

This recipe is a great favorite at our house. We use it on all of our garden salads because it blends so well with fresh fruits and vegetables. We enjoy sharing it with others, too, and have received many compliments on it. —Abigail Stauffer, Port Trevorton, Pennsylvania
Here's a lightly sweet, refreshing dressing that lets the flavor of banana come through. A homemaker with four grown children, I have an extensive recipe collection. This dressing is so good over crisp greens or fresh fruit. Give it a try! —Gloria Kirchman, Eden Prairie, Minnesota
"I created this citrusy dressing to give my salads a different flavor," says Marge Werner of Broken Arrow, Oklahoma. "Just mix it up and pour over your favorite tossed greens." Or try the creamy combination over a medley of assorted fresh fruit.
This light, refreshing dressing is yummy over spinach and other types of salad greens, notes Sue Dannahower of Fort Pierce, Florida. The sweet-tart combination of honey, mustard, vinegar and citrus also accompanies fresh fruit nicely.
"I simply love this creamy, fresh-tasting dressing! It’s so quick to assemble and adds a summery gourmet touch when drizzled over a salad. I often serve it with lettuce or fresh spinach tossed with sliced strawberries and sugared almonds," suggests Kendra Stoller in Kouts, Indiana.
It's served with all our fruit salad choices, including the popular Three Salad Plate that features Chicken Walnut Apple Salad, Spinach Salad and Fresh Fruit Salad. In addition to salads, other favorites we serve include sandwiches, soups, entrees and desserts, all served in four cheerful dining rooms and an outdoor courtyard.—Andra Kunkle, Lenoir, North Carolina
