Lemon Poppy Seed Vinaigrette

This is by far my favorite salad dressing of the summer. Lemon poppy seed vinaigrette goes great with just about any salad combination; I recommend tossing the salad with mixed greens, strawberries, pecans, shaved shallots, goat cheese, and a little grilled chicken…yum!

Makes 1 1/2 cupsPoppy Seed Vinaigrette

1/4 cup sugar
Zest from 1 Meyer lemon
4 Meyer lemons, juiced
1 small shallot
1/2 cup white wine vinegar
2 tsp Dijon mustard
1 tsp salt & pepper
3/4 cup olive oil
1 tbs poppy seeds

Mix ingredients in food processor, with exception of the olive oil and poppy seeds. Pulse until smooth while slowly pouring in olive oil. Once smooth add poppy seeds. Place in a large mason jar or airtight container and store in the fridge until ready to use. Give the dressing a stir or shake before serving. Use within one week
