Lemon Poppy Seed Vinaigrette is by far my favorite salad dressing of the summer. It goes well with just about any salad combination; I recommend tossing the salad with mixed greens, strawberries, pecans, shaved shallots, goat cheese, and a little grilled chicken — yum!


It makes 1 1/2 cups.


1/4 cup sugar
Zest from 1 Meyer lemon
4 Meyer lemons, juiced
1 small shallot
1/2 cup white wine vinegar
2 tsp. Dijon mustard
1 tsp. salt & pepper
3/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
1 tbs. poppy seeds


Mix ingredients in a food processor, with the exception of the olive oil and poppy seeds. Pulse until smooth while slowly pouring in extra virgin olive oil. Once smooth add poppy seeds. Place in a large mason jar or airtight container and store in the fridge until ready to use. Give the dressing a stir or shake before serving. Use within one week
