Homemade Poppy Seed Dressing:

Is it frowned upon to drink salad dressing? If so, I am in trouble! I could drink this Poppy Seed Dressing because it is so darn good. Poppy seed has always been a favorite dressing of mine, but making it homemade makes it 10x better. Who knew simple ingredients could tastes so good?

How long does this dressing last?

If you have any leftover dressing, feel free to add it to a mason jar and pop in the fridge. It will last up to 4 days. Before serving, make sure to give it a good shake as the ingredients will separate and settle in the fridge.
