I told you of my realization I could make dressing rather than buy it, thus re-using all those dressing bottles I had acquired. What I did not explain was that I had a mild addiction to Annie's Papaya Poppyseed Dressing. It is really good.
Since I had committed to making dressing, I decided to scour the web for similiar dressings. Funny, it was not among the vast repertoire of knock off recipes. And I kept finding recipes using papaya seeds which was not at all what I wanted. The papayas in the stores here are the saddest of tropical fruits. But wait! Why couldn't I substitute mango for the papaya?
It is not too hard to find sweet dressing recipes or poppyseed recipes. From the wide range of recipes, here is what I cobbled together. And, I think it is really tasty and it does satisfy my craving for the old Annie's!
Tangy Mango Salad Dressing
1/3 cup vinegar (use the one you like best. I uses red wine once, reaspberry once.)
2/3 cup oil (I use less and add some water)
3/4 tsp salt
1/3 cup sugar
1 Tbs dijon mustard
Put in blender and blend. Add poppyseeds last, if you like.
Makes a little more than one salad dressing bottle full.
