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.
A sweet homemade dressing flecked with poppy seeds coats this green salad sent in by Tonia Booker of Gilbert, Arizona. The combination of sweet peaches, salty feta cheese, and crunchy onion and cucumber offers an array of tastes and textures.
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.
