Sure, it’s easy to buy a bottle of salad dressing from your local supermarket but is it easier—or better – than making it at home? Not if the recipe calls for six ingredients that you probably already have in your own kitchen.
Verde’s Honey Poppy Seed Vinaigrette marries the sweet, subtly smoky notes of honey with the tartness of apple cider vinegar and the salty, nasal heat of Dijon mustard. The result is a salad dressing that’s sophisticated and piquant enough to hold its own against bold flavors like blue cheese or the distinct sweetness of scuppernong grapes.
Verde serves this tangy, slightly sweet and floral vinaigrette with mixed greens, local muscadine or scuppernong grapes, apples, blue cheese and pecans.
