Poppy seed salad dressing

In my efforts to avoid processed foods, I am finding excellent alternatives to the hum drum Ranch and Blue Cheese Dressings and adding a bit more flavor than the simple oil and vinegar option.  This poppy seed dressing is both tangy and sweet.  Certainly is lovely on fresh spinach and strawberry salad!  Tonight I enjoyed it over a mix of spring greens and oranges.

2 TBS. finely chopped purple onion
3/4 tsp stevia (Stevita brand powder) or 3/4 cup sugar
1 tsp. dry mustard
2 tsp. salt
3/4 c. vinegar
2 c. salad oil
2 tsp. poppy seed

Wisk all ingredients together.  Shake well before pouring over salad.
