My ladies group at church printed a cookbook several years ago, and this recipe was in the book, with no name attached. I serve it over mixed greens, drizzle it over sliced tomatoes and cucumbers and even use it as a dressing for coleslaw. -Gay Nell Nicholas, Henderson, Texas

Loved this recipe - it was as good as any poppy dressing I've had! As one other reviewer mentioned, the longer you refrigerate it, the better the flavors meld. This is especially true for the onions. I'd recommend storing it at least overnight if possible. Read More

Very good. I also decreased the sugar to a bit over 1/2 cup and the oil to 3/4 cup. Read More

I made this with 1/8 cup stevia instead of sugar and substituted olive oil for the vegetable oil. I also used Vidalia onion. It is sooo good. I will definitely make this again and again! Read More

Delicious! I cut down on the onion a bit and it was still a bit strong for me, so next time I'll probably use about 2 teaspoons and see if that is more to my liking. Thanks for sharing this wonderful recipe. Read More

Fantastic! Just the right amount of sweet and tangy. I used it on a spinach salad and everyone loved it. Can't wait to make cole slaw with it. Thanks Read More

This is a good recipe. I took the advice of other reviewers and cut the sugar down to 2/3 cup - I might even cut it to 1/2 cup the next time (although it might mellow with time). Î found the dressing too thick, so whisked in 1/3 cup water and it turned out well. Read More

This recipe is great! I served it for a luncheon on a strawberry/feta spinach salad and had several requests for the recipe. I will definitely make it again! Read More

Wow! I cut back on the sweetness and used a sugar substitute due to dietary constraints. I used the sugar sub that is measured as sugar and used 1/2 cup. Could have used less. The combination of ingredients is delicious. But NOT as good as Renees, inspite of sugar.... Read More

This salad dressing was well recieved, but in the future I would definitely cut the sugar back to maybe 2/3 or 1/2 a cup. When I suggested that at the dinner table, everyone agreed although the dressing was tasty it was a bit sweeter than we'd like. Side note: I served this over a spinach salad for guests about 5 days after making the dressing. For whatever reason the sweetness was tempered and the dressing was delicious - it was actually the most raved about part of dinner! Read More
