Honey–Poppy Seed Salad Dressing Recipe

Honey–Poppy Seed Salad Dressing
Difficulty: Easy | Total Time: | Makes: About 1 cup

A classic poppy seed dressing is a nice change from the standard vinaigrette, and this easy version is a snap to make: Just mix cider vinegar, honey, Dijon mustard, poppy seeds, and oil until a tangy-sweet dressing forms. It’s great tossed in coleslaw, or try it with chicken fingers for a new twist on honey-mustard dipping sauce.

INGREDIENTS
  • 1/3 cup cider vinegar
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon poppy seeds
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
INSTRUCTIONS
Place the vinegar, honey, mustard, poppy seeds, and salt in a large, nonreactive bowl, season with pepper, and whisk to combine. While whisking constantly, slowly add the oil until all of it is incorporated. If not serving immediately, refrigerate the dressing in a container with a tightfitting lid for up to 2 weeks.
