Strawberry Poppyseed Dressing

An addictive twist on poppyseed dressing!





Poppyseed dressing has always been one of my favourites. I love the contrast of the sweetness, tart bite of the apple cider vinegar and onion flavour. When I had strawberries I needed to use up, I decided to add them to my favourite dressing for a new twist.

With strawberry season right around the corner, this is a delicious way to use some of them.  I must say, this is an amazing dressing! It's sweet and tart, smooth and creamy, and it looks so pretty! I decided to serve it on a spinach salad, with additional fresh strawberries, feta cheese and pistachios. A-MA-ZING!





Strawberry Poppy Seed Dressing

5 large strawberries, huled (about 1/2 C)
1/4 C yellow onion, chopped
zest and juice of one clementine
1/4 C apple cider vinegar
2-3 Tbs honey (depending on how sweet your berries are)
1 Tbs honey Dijon mustard
generous pinch of coarse sea salt
fresh ground pepper
1/4- 1/3 C olive oil
1 1/2 tsp poppy seeds

Place berries in a food processor, with the onions, clementine juice and zest, apple cider vinegar, honey, honey Dijon mustard, salt and pepper. Process until smooth. With blades going, slowly stream in the olive oil, until dressing loosens enough to be pourable and is silky smooth. Remove blade from processor bowl and stir in the poppy seeds. Pour into a mason jar and refrigerate until ready to use. Will keep up to 7 days in the fridge.

No Yeast Old Fashion Cinnamon Rolls

 These delicious cinnamon sticky rolls have been in my family for over 40 yrs. No yeast is required, so you can whip up a batch of these in no time. Still tender, sticky sweet and delicious! Ever since I can remember Mom would make these as a special treat. It wasn't too often, but every once in a while, we'd come home to these no yeast cinnamon rolls, as an after school snack. Growing up, this is what I thought cinnamon rolls were. I wasn't aware that there was a yeast version of cinnamon rolls. As much as I LOVE the yeast version, this no yeast version seems to make an appearance more frequently here at home.  Since there is no yeast in the dough, it does not need to rise for 30 minutes before being rolled out and baked. When I worked in the retirement home the residents were always excited when I made these cinnamon rolls. They said it reminded them of their childhood. It was amazing seeing how happy a simple recipe could make them. I don't make these very often and

Black Forest Roll Cake

Light and fluffy cherry and whipped cream filling is rolled in an airy sponge cake. 13 years ago, I made a dinner that I was totally proud of. Not only did it taste wonderful, it looks fantastic too. I was so proud of myself that I took a photo, which I wanted to share with my friends and family. Only I didn't know how I could share it with everyone, at the same time. Then a thought came to me- a blog!!!  I've always been a foodie. While growing up, I'd often watch talk shows, just to see the cooking segments. I'd sit with a pen and paper, quickly jotting down ingredients and directions, to hopefully recreate recipes at home. I still remember a beet salad I begged my mom to let me make, asking her to buy raspberry wine vinegar for the dressing. It turned out to be something neither of us enjoyed, and up until a few years ago, Mom still had the vinegar in her cupboard.  I first started my first blog, Hun... What's  for Dinner?, as a way to share recipes with my famil

Peanut Butter Confetti Squares

 A mixture of peanut butter and butterscotch chips, coat colourful marshmallows, for a simple, fun and easy holiday treat! My family calls these Galettes Froides, but most people know these as confetti squares. My grandmothers would make these for Christmas, and Mom has been making these desserts at Christmas time, since I can remember. They've always been my favourite because of the use of the rainbow marshmallows. There's just something about the colours that make these looks so yummy. These squares couldn't be more simple to make and I love that they are no bake as well. Some people use regular white marshmallows, some people use chunky peanut butter and some people add coconut. I like them each and every way I can get them. It wouldn't be Christmas without these confetti squares making an appearance.
