    In blender container or food processor bowl with metal blade, combine sugar, onion, salt, lemon juice and mustard. Cover; blend until well mixed. With machine running, add oil in slow, steady stream, blending until dressing is thick and smooth. Add poppy seed; pulse a few times to mix.

Tips from the Pillsbury Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Several restaurants offer a salad similar to this recipe; this version is easy to make at home.
  • tip 2
    Roasted salted nuts are wonderful in poultry salads; try almonds or cashews here.
  • tip 3
    Garnish the salad platter with whole strawberries.
  • tip 4
    Blue cheese is a nice contrast to rich walnuts, and sweet dressing and strawberries. Offer a small bowl of blue cheese on the side to sprinkle on the salad for the blue cheese lovers.
