Ingredients

1/2 cup oil (canola oil or extral virgin olive oil)

1/4 cup cider vinegar

1/3 cup sugar (I recommend using sugar substitute, sucrolose. Another option is to use half sugar, half sugar substitute)

1/2 tsp grated onion (any will do, but yellow is best)

1/2 tsp mustard (yellow works best but dijon is fine)

1/2 tsp poppy seeds (just make sure you don't have any upcoming drug tests before consuming copious amounts of dressing)


Put all ingredients in a salad dressing bottle and shake until mixed (about 30 seconds should do it). Store at room temperature or refrigerate. Best if used within a week.


Other reasons why this dressing is good for you:


- low sodium


- low saturated fat (no mayo or eggs)


- tons of flavor and a little goes a long way

Notes

My best friend Dawn made this delicious dressing for a salad at my bridal shower. I nearly fainted when I saw the amount of sugar in it so I made some changes to it to make it healthier. This light dressing will add amazing flavor to any salad. Try it with a garden salad or greens topped with chicken (or even tuna fish).
