This is a great dressing for a fresh fruit salad. Very tangy and sweet.

Very good! I used raspberry vinegar instead of white vinegar (highly recommend it!). Half (or even a fourth) of this recipe is plenty. Thanks for sharing it! Read More

This was very easy to make and tasted great. I cut the oil in half because I like to cook light and it was fine. I also used white wine vinegar since I was out of plain. Read More

In a word--excellent. Pungent is an appropriate word when describing this dressing. I'm used to Albert's style Poppyseed dressing a company that has it's roots in Omaha. Albert's style is milder than this version which is a bit wild. Like another reviewer I used white wine vinegar. I highly recommend this recipe. It's quick and easy to throw together and your family and friends will be impressed. Read More

This was delicious. I too used it on the spinach pecan and peach salad. I ate it three days in a row. I tried decreasing the sugar content but ended up using only a bit less than the recommended amount. The sugar is necessary. Read More

Loved this recipe. I needed to make a salad dressing in a hurry. This was the first recipe I came to and I thought I would give it a try since I had all the ingredients on hand. Made it just as it is and my husband loved it. Most poppyseed dressings we have bought are very sweet and this one is on the slightly tangy side and not so supper sweet, which is why my husband loved it so much. I will make this again. Thanks!

Absolutely delicious! We took a salad to a dinner group tonight and everyone loved it. A friend said she makes a very similar dressing with a tablespoon of orange juice. I might try that next time too. I followed the recipe except I added some raspberry flavored vinegar to the vinegar measurement. The onion really adds the perfect kick to the dressing. I'll be making this regularly. Read More

This is great!! Very yummy on any salad. I tossed it w/ a green salad w/ soy beans pine nuts orange wedges and sliced chicken. My hubby loved it and ate it all up (when he usually grimaces when he realizes that I made salad). This a great dressing for those who are trying to eat healthier or introduce veggies to their diet.

Cider vinegar works well. I used demara sugar, added a teaspoon of mayo to emulsify it, and lightly toasted the poppy seeds in a skillet for a punchier flavor. This one is a keeper! Read More
