Lemon Poppyseed Dressing

This is a very fresh tasting dressing for various salads. It has a delicate balance of light sweetness from honey and sugar, savoury touch from the pinch of salt and olive oil, and the slight tanginess from the lemon, but none of them should overpower other flavours. Carefully taste the dressing as you mix, and bring it to the taste you like.

1teaspoon black poppyseeds
2 tablespoon honey
1 lemon, zest+juice
200ml sour cream
1tablespoon sugar
30ml (or shotglass full), circa, extra virgine olive oil (or little more if necessary)
drop of milk (optional)
pinch of salt

Mix vigorously all the ingredients, adjusting the amount of honey, sugar, salt.
Add some drops of oil or milk and bring the dressing to desired consistency. (creamy but not too thick)

*I will introduce a yummy salad on the next installment which is perfect for this dressing!!
