Dressing My Greens: Mother's Day Fun!

 Me, Mom, and Diana

I hope everyone enjoyed Mother's Day weekend!!
I know my crazy family did :) It was the second time we hosted a family get-together at my place. But the first time we've used the pool for this type of gathering. And it was so great!!

I also wanted to share a delicious salad dressing recipe with you because, it is just my favorite!!

I love salads...I do, it's kinda sad. The more tangy, sweet, sour, and crunch it has, the more I love it. I feel this salad and its homemade dressing takes the cake for awesomest combo of the above mentioned qualities ;)

Blend the following items:
1 small white onion
1 tsp salt
1 tbs dijon mustard
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
1 cup vegetable oil
*Once blended, stir 1 tsp of poppy seeds to the dressing.

For the salad itself, you will need spinach, golden raisins, Craisins, sliced almonds, and cherry tomatoes.

Family tip: the dressing tastes best if you make it a few days prior to serving. Let it sit in the fridge for a few days if possible. Enjoy and happy blending!!!

What did you do for Mother's Day weekend?
