Ingredients

  • 2/3 cups Vegetable Oil safflower, corn, or peanut
  • 1/4 cup Limes juice
  • 2 tablespoons Oranges juice
  • 2 tablespoons Oranges rind, grated
  • 2 tablespoons Honey
  • 2 tablespoons Onions green, minced
  • 1 Tbsp Poppy Seed toasted
  • 1 Salt to taste
  • 1 Black Pepper to taste

Directions

  1. Place all ingredients in a screw-top jar.
  2. Shake vigorously.
  3. Chill until serving.
  4. This dressing complements any green salad, but the addition of some small chunks of cantaloupe, honeydew, or star fruit to your greens will enhance the orange-honey flavor of the dressing. Or try it over slices of cold roast pork with nectarine wedges on watercress.
  5. Poppy seeds: Did you know that it takes almost a million seeds to make a pound? These tiny bluish-black gems come from the opium poppy plant. But even if you eat a million, you won't experience any narcotic effect. Connoisseurs say those imported from holland taste best. For even better flavor, seeds should be slightly toasted in a 350° f (180° c) oven for about 5 minutes.
