It’s been a while since I’ve actually purchased a bottle of salad dressing for us at the house. It’s safe to say I’ve been feeling pretty confident in my salad dressing-making abilities. Easy vinaigrettes are just plain life-savers as you just need a handful of ingredients to toss together something really good.
My new fave topping for green salads is definitely this sweet lemon-poppy seed vinaigrette!
How to make sweet lemon-poppy seed vinaigrette
This is a no-fuss vinaigrette that requires just six simple ingredients to make a small batch. If you have some olive oil, a whole fresh lemon or lemon juice, honey, poppy seeds, and some salt and pepper in your kitchen, you are good to go. You will have a sweet, tangy homemade dressing all ready to drizzle over your next leafy green in no time!
The hardest part of making this recipe will be the short wait you have to endure before you can use it! It’s best to allow the dressing to sit on the countertop or chill for 20- 30 minutes for some delicious results. This tangy vinaigrette thickens slightly as it sits and the flavors will come together beautifully if given just a bit of extra time to marry!
