- 1 teaspoon salt

Place vinegar in small bowl.
Add sugar, mustard and salt, mix well until sugar and salt dissolve.
Place half onion in blender or food processor, add liquid and blend until mixed.
Add oil in thin stream until emulsified.
Return to bowl and stir in poppy seeds.
Place mixed greens in bowl, toss lightly in dressing and plate.
This is also a great dressing to make when you just have a small amount of dijon left in the jar. Just add the rest of the ingredients, shake vigorously and serve.
