Fruit Salad w/ Poppyseed dressing for a guest who loves poppyseeds?

sweet100s Nov 14, 2011 02:11 PM

Hello Home Cooking!

A Thanksgiving guest loves poppyseeds, and I am craving a fruit salad.

Does anyone know of a good recipe for a fruit salad w/ poppyseed dressing?

    I used to do a salad of bibb lettuce, mandarin oranges or strawberries, thinly sliced red onion, avocado, and a dressing made from olive oil, red wine vinegar, a boatload of poppy seats, a little sugar and S&P.

      Sweetpotater, thank you

      Sounds delicious, though I wouldn't have expected the avocado there.

      Now you're sending me on a "green" thought...

      What about a "Shades of Green" fruit salad, with

      pear pieces
      pistachios
      avocado
      bibb lettuce
      orange wedges (for a splash of a contrasting color)

      and your Poppy seed dressing: olive oil, red wine vinegar, a boatload of poppy seeds, a little sugar and S&P.
