This simple recipe was handed down to me from a very dear friend, and is great on any tossed green salad. You can add a few drops of red food coloring to make it pink if you wish.

I'm sorry this just tasted like PURE mayo to me! I was so excited and even added the red food coloring to make it pink. When I tasted it- I gagged! I just kept adding more maple syrup sugar and vinegar but I couldn't cover up the mayo taste!! I made my husband taste it before I brought it to a party and he said to leave it home!! Sorry- not for us. Read More

Wow this dressing is incredible. I too used fat free mayonnaise and splenda in place of sugar. Served with fresh baby green salad. A new staple in my fridge! Read More

I really love this dressing. I use it on a mixed green salad with mandarin oranges sliced strawberries and red onions. I recently made this for a PTA luncheon with grilled chicken and it was a huge hit. I always make it with the "olive oil mayo" and "real" maple syrup I was asked for the recipe at least 20 times.

Trying to Duplicate a Local Restaurants Maple Poppyseed Dressing. It is a Staple for them. Popular served with Chicken Fingers and Sweet Potato Fries!!! Try it! You'll never eat them again without Maple Poppyseed Dip/Dressing! I did Double the Maple Syrup and also Doubled the Red Wine Vinegar. Also added 2 teaspoons of Dijon Mustard!! Added more Maple taste and a bit of a tang to the back of your pallet. Awesome!! Read More
