Lemon Poppyseed Dressing

I love Poppyseed dressing but don't like all the sugar in it so typically avoid it. Now I don't have to. I found this dressing online and was able to adapt it accordingly.

Lemon Poppyseed Dressing

1/3 cup sugar (I used about 2/3 of the 1/3 cup Splenda and topped it off with sugar to make 1/2 cup)
1/2 cup fresh lemon juice (I think the fresh juice is what makes this so yummy)
2 teaspoons onions, diced
1 teaspoon spicy brown mustard
1 small squirt honey
1/2 teaspoon salt
2/3 cup canola oil
2 Tablespoons poppy seeds

In a blender, combine sugar, lemon juice, onion, mustard, honey & salt. Process until well blended.

With blender still running, pour oil in a slow steady stream until mixture is thick & smooth.

Add poppy seeds, processing a few more seconds to mix.

I used this one a salad the other night with spinach, baby romaine, raspberries, strawberries, grapes & sliced almonds. You can adapt to whatever salad fixins you like.

What a great fresh tasting dressing. YUM!
