Sweet Poppy Seed Dressing
All of my favorite salads are topped off with this homemade poppy seed dressing. I use this sweet concoction to drizzle over fruit salads with strawberries, grapes, oranges and bananas ... or over spinach and toasted pecans.—Deborah Amrine, Fort Myers, Florida

I have never made or had a poppy seed dressing before, but I wanted to try "Easy Tossed Salad" which calls for poppy seed dressing, to serve with "Sausage and Pumpkin Pasta" Both were excellent and I will make this dressing again!
