I am having a salad bar of sorts for our party on Friday night so I was trying to decide what I should do for salad dressing.
Our chef at work always makes fresh dressing and my favorite is poppy seed.
He uses a recipe from a culinary text book entitled On Cooking.
The ingredients are:
- 8 fl oz cider vinegar (I used a mixture of cider vinegar and balsamic. Red wine vinegar makes a pretty pink dressing.)
- 6 fl oz honey
- 3/4 tsp salt
- 1 tsp dry mustard
- 2 tsp celery leaves, minced
- 1 green onion, white only, minced
- 8 fl oz vegetable oil
- 1.5 Tbsp poppy seeds
The directions are simple mix everything except the oil and poppy seeds together.
Beat in the oil by droplets then a thin stream. I do the mixing in a blender for a creamier texture.
This recipe yields approximately 20 fluid ounces. Plenty for a party.
Do you have a favorite salad dressing?
