For the Creamy Dressing -

  • 3/4 cup mayonaise
  • 3 TBS apple cider vinegar
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 tsp dry mustard
  • 1/2 tsp diced onion
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp poppy seeds

For the Vinaigrette –

  • 1 cup oil
  • 3/8 cup rice vinegar
  • 3/8 cup white vinegar
  • 3/4 cups sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon poppy seeds
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground mustard
  • 1 medium purple onion thinly sliced


For the Creamy Dressing -

  • Combine all ingredients in a small bowl.
  • Whisk until completely combined. (You can also combine everything except the poppy seeds in a food processor or blender and then stir in the poppy seeds.)
  • Cover with plastic wrap and place in refrigerator for at least 30 minutes before serving.

For the Vinaigrette –

  • In a large jar (I used a Mason jar), combine all the ingredients, except the onions. Mix well.
  • Put the thinly sliced onions into the dressing, then place the dressing in the fridge. Let the onions marinate in the dressing for 1-6 hours, depending on how much patience you have.
