Poppy Seed Dressing

  • Yield: About 2 1/2 cups


  • Juice of one-half lime
  • One-half cup red wine vinegar
  • 1 cup olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • One-fourth cup sweet white wine
  • 2 tablespoons poppy seeds
  • One-half cup honey


  • Let the lime sit in hot water for 15 minutes before squeezing. This will help to yield more juice. Whisk all of the ingredients together in a bowl.
