Creamy citrus and poppy seeds salad dressing

Citrus poppy seed salad dressing

Sunday is here which means it is time for a new and refreshing salad dressing recipe. The weather is warming up, and with spring in the air, I crave colors! it is like I need to wash away the months of winter gloom. I go hunting for color and beauty every where,I’d be stuck in traffic but my attention is on the sidewalk admiring a tender flower opening up its petals to greet the world. Driving home late from work , I try to focus on the breath taking hues of sunset, it is like the sun is a silent artist painting the horizon everyday trying to remind us that even endings can be beautiful.  I get home and all I crave is a bowl of refreshing greens dotted with splashes of colors from the different fruits and veges and perfectly complimented with a new homemade salad dressing

Today’s dressing is creamy,sweet and tangy with a little bite of Dijon mustard, it is a perfect compliment to green salads especially salads that feature fruit.
