Orange Poppyseed Dressing recipe by Barefeet In The Kitchen

I admit it. I’m salad dressing obsessed these days. Tangy, tart citrus, sweet honey, crunchy poppy seeds in a sweet salad dressing. My beloved Creamy Poppyseed Dressing has competition at last.

I’ve been on the hunt for a dairy-free poppyseed dressing for months and I’ve finally found the perfect one!

I found one of Paula Deen’s salad recipes and realized that I could adapt it to create what I was looking for in a dressing. I reduced the sugar a good bit and it is still a very sweet dressing.

I served this on a simple salad of baby spinach, fruit, and brown sugar almonds. My husband took one bite and commented that it was almost a dessert salad. Sounds crazy, right? Well, I happily ate two servings of this salad and skipped dessert. Yes, it was that good!

    Oooh Mary – here you go with your salad dressings:-)…I love this one, too. I love that mandarin orange and almond salad from weight watchers so I imagine an orange dressing would be awesome!
