Recently I came across a great deal on poppy seeds. I don't know if they are as expensive where you live but normally they are 14 dollars per pound here. I found six ounces for $2.60. Poppy seeds do go rancid so I started putting them to good use. I JUST LOVE FINDING A GREAT DEAL!
I made some poppy seed salad dressing and poured it over some nappa cabbage. I added green onions and some bacon. I used about a tablespoon of chopped bacon in a big bowl of cabbage. It was enough flavor to go through the whole salad. So you don't need much.
