Reviews for Homemade Honey Poppy Seed Dressing
"For oil, I like to use a blend of olive-canola-grapeseed (Mediterranean Oil at a big-box store); it's still fat but beneficial variety. For salt I use "salt sense" which is real salt but with 30% less sodium. This dressing is especially welcome for our hot weather salads."
"I love poppy seed dressing, but this has waaaay too much fat and sodium. I would be very interested in a makeover recipe."
"Poppy seed dressing is my favorite dressing for salad - whether fruit or vegetable. I will use this particular recipe to make my own rather than wait until we eat out. And I'm eager to use it on a mixture of blueberries and pears which we happen to have on hand today. Thanks for posting this!"
"Use yogurt for half the oil"
"Very good and really made my fruit salad more interesting! I added a splash of pear juice from the can though, and it added a bit of sweetness - thought it was too tart without it."
"Fantastic dressing to put on fresh fruit for added flavor. It complemented our blackberries, strawberries and mango fruit blend real well."
"The flavour was really good but 12 gr of fat? Are you kidding me???? I would love to find a substitute for the oil. Would apple sauce work?"
