Orange Poppy Seed Dressing

This light, refreshing dressing is yummy over spinach and other types of salad greens, notes Sue Dannahower of Fort Pierce, Florida. The sweet-tart combination of honey, mustard, vinegar and citrus also accompanies fresh fruit nicely.

    Very tasty. I made it with agave nectar instead of honey.

    Really great, fat free dressing. I might add some pepper in the future to give it more of a kick.

    There is no sugar or sweetner listed among ingredients, but there is a note at the bottom saying the recipe was tested with Splenda brown sugar. How much?

    My husband has problems with cornstarch. Could I use flour instead, if not flour can you recommend something else?
