Poppy Seed Dressing


  • 2 tablespoons poppy seeds
  • 1 tablespoon sesame seeds (optional)
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup white vinegar
  • 1/4 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tablespoon minced onion (optional)


  1. Mix all ingredients and store in a jar in the refrigerator.
  2. Let stand at room temperature for a few minutes before using and shake well. The dressing will keep at least a week in the refrigerator, longer if you omit the onion.
  3. Note: I have tried this dressing with agave syrup instead of sugar. It is good, but I do prefer the regular sugar. You only need to lightly coat the greens to capture the wonderful flavor. This amount of dressing will allow you to enjoy many nights of salad in a flash.
