Tips & Tricks

  • Use fresh oranges and limes - no bottled juice! I promise it makes all the difference. 
  • Choose GREAT fruit. Ripe fruits that are in season will be the most flavorful.
  • Add the dressing right before serving to avoid soggy fruit. 
  • Use up the leftover poppy seed dressing in this delicious Autumn Chopped Salad recipe!


Make Ahead Instructions

Make the dressing as instructed, then store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 1 week. It will be cloudy because of the poppy seed dressing… Don’t worry, just give it a good stir. Add to fresh fruit right before serving for best results.
