Poppy Seed Salad Dressing

Why Dr. Hoody endorses this recipe:

Poppy Seed Salad Dressing is a lovely sweet and tangy topping for fresh greens and fruit, like our Strawberry Spinach Salad.  Free from refined sugars, this dressing recipe makes a healthful addition to your salad.

Honey, especially raw honey, contains thousands more nutrients, including enzymes, than refined (clear) honey.  One easy way to know if it’s real raw honey – it should be cloudy and often contains gritty pieces.  And, real raw honey is always a bit more expensive.  But, we should be using a smaller amount anyway.

The poppy seeds contain protein, fiber, and are rich in calcium and magnesium.  A good, natural seasoning or condiment for many recipes.   The apple cider vinegar will help absorption of the calcium in the poppy seeds and increase intake of many  nutrients in the raw honey. (And, it tastes good.)
