This dressing is wonderful over fresh fruit or shredded cabbage and halved grapes.

I'm the submitter of this recipe and I haven't been here in a long while but I was APPALLED when I read the recipe here. It is supposed to read ONE TABLESPOON onion juice not a whole onion!!!!! No wonder some people said it was too onion-y! Honestly I don't believe I submittied it that way maybe a typo when Allrecipes posted it. So sorry it came out that way! It really is a great dressing. Additionally I've found it gets by very well with only 1/2 cup sugar instead of 3/4 cup. Read More

I would rename this dressing to Onion-Poppy Seed Dressing II. I only used a very small part of an onion but it was way too much for this. Granted I used a white onion. I would only recommend using a SWEET onion for this recipe. Otherwise this dressing wasn't bad. Read More

This is an out standing recipe. I have been making this for years. The only difference in my recipe is I use only 1/2 cup sugar and 1T minced onion and only 1T poppy seed. I have made without onions too. Mix in blender without the seeds. Add seeds after blending. It really is restaurant quality. Thanks Cathy! Read More

Very tasty recipe Cathy. I followed the suggestions of some of the other reviewers and used only 1/2 cup of sugar and maybe 1/4 cup of grated onion. I added a little balsamic vinegar (the brand I use is strong and rather sweet) for a bit more flavor. I mixed this in the blender adding the oil in a small stream so I ended up with a mayonnaise-like dressing and then added the poppy seeds. On baby spinach with fresh raspberries and crumbled blue cheese it was an ideal summer evening salad. Read More

My husband and 5 year-old love this. I made a spinach salad with sliced strawberries and toasted sliced almonds. This dressing went perfectly! Made a great refreshing "summer" salad. Read More

Yummy! Fantastic version of a cole slaw dressing. I made a couple of minor alterations which turned out perfectly...Used 1/2 c. white sugar with 1/4 c. brown sugar used 1/2 C. veg oil with 1/2 c. Wildtree's Roasted Onion Grapeseed Oil added 1 tsp prepared horseradish. Served dressing over 1 head shredded red cabbage 1/2 large shredded vidalia onion 2 shredded carrots and 1/2 C. roasted slivered almonds. You may have read in some of my other reviews that I love Wildree Herbs' products. Top notch ingredients. I don't know where they're available around the country (I'm in R.I.) but you can check them out at www.wildtreeherbs.com. Read More
