Orange Poppyseed Salad Dressing is perfect for those lovely winter salads that we all love, love, love… I actually do like salads..I’m a little weird like that;) If you are going to eat a salad anyway- you might as well make a salad dressing that is really, really good. And they are so easy to make! I usually don’t go by a recipe but, for the sake of this post I measured everything out and taste tested ect.. No one could possibly not do this or mess it up. Buy a salad mix in a bag if you must but….just make the dressing! Bonus snack idea below:)
Orange Poppyseed Dressing snack idea:
Toast 1-2 slices of bread
Peel and mash one whole avocado
Add 3 tablespoons orange poppyseed salad dressing
Salt and pepper to taste.
Mix salad dressing with avocado. Spread onto toast and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
The awesome cara cara navel orange(heart eyes emoji) they are sweet and tangy at the same time. And that color!! Plain navel oranges would be perfect for this recipe. I just couldn’t resist these pretty babes:)
Take a moment to admire my authentic 1960’s juicer:) Thanks to my mom and grandma! I juiced 4 oranges to get close to 1 cup of juice.
Favorite olive oil for this recipe.
I only used the dijon mustard for this orange poppyseed dressing. Of course, the course ground could be used also or in place of the dijon.
I was actually experimenting with photographing with all natural light and backgrounds while shooting for this post. Which explains why I have photos of the the olive oil and mustard jars. Natural light can give a photo a magical quality that I love but, it is so tricky at the same time! I decided to put this post up in honor of my efforts, hah! Even if all you food sites cringe, the artsy side of me really loves all the dark and light shadows and the non-styled look in these photos.
Straight up moodiness:)
