Poppy Seed Dressing

today dear friends you are going to learn how to make the best, most widely used salad dressing in the world


we use it 90% of the time. & ran out a few days ago : /
so I made a brand new batch. its perfect for summer. & pretty to look at, too.

& yes.  i know its not thursday yet. im jumping the gun (not that anyone really is keeping track)
i have many more things i want to share with you. so im posting again tomorrow.

you will need:
1/3 cup of white vinegar
3/4 cup of sugar
2 teaspoons of ground mustard (umm…or just regular mustard if you're like me)
1 teaspoon of grated onion
1 cup of vegetable oil
1 tablespoon of poppyseeds

ladies, get your aprons on. you may need it. depending on how awesome your blender is. mine is a splatterhead & drenched me in oil the first time. you will be happy to know that i made it though this jar completely unscathed. i used a towel to cover the opening in the blender. oh, but im getting ahead of myself.

no. 2
combine first four ingredients [vinegar, sugar, mustard & onion] in a blender, and well…blend. well.

no. 3
sooo this is the messy part. you're going to want to turn your blender back on and slowly pour in your vegetable oil. if you are one of those lucky people (like my mom) that has a teeny tiny hole in the top of your blender for such things, you'll be in good hands. if not…just keep a towel with you for this part and use it to cover the hand that is pouring into the blender. does that make sense? just do whatever keeps the splatter away.

no. 4
pour in a pretty jar and add your poppyseeds
