Okay, first, let’s talk a second about poppy seeds. According to Wikipedia, poppy seeds are a rich source of thiamin, folate, calcium, iron, magnesium, manganese, phosphorus, and zinc. (I knew there was a reason why I liked adding poppy seeds to this homemade dressing.)
Can you see the poppy seeds?
I usually drizzle Easy Poppy Seed Dressing on salads, however, this dressing is so adaptable, I find that it is good for multiple dishes. (One more reason why this recipe is high up on my list of favorites!)
First, drizzle Easy Poppy Seed Dressing over a bowl of fresh fruit, or a pasta salad, or use it as a dressing for coleslaw.
This fabulous dressing can also serve double duty as a sauce for grilled foods. (Think grilled bacon-wrapped new potatoes, fish, or veggies!)
In addition, this dressing makes a delicious condiment for sandwiches and rollups.
Easy Poppy Seed Dressing can even be added to homemade egg salad, tuna salad, and chicken salad.
I honestly can not tell you the exact shelf life of Easy Poppy Seed Dressing because I easily use an entire jar within a week or two.
