Notes by GourmetGal: This dressing is good on salad greens with vegetables, and also on fruit salads. I have served it on a combination of all three. I cut the oil to 3/4 cup, and only use about a Tablespoon or less of the poppy seeds, which seems to be plenty for us. I have also used balsamic vinegar instead of cider vinegar, and it turns out quite well that way.
