Citrus Poppyseed Dressing

1 tsp lemon zest (a little less works just fine, too)
1 tsp orange zest
Juice from one lemon, about 2 Tbs
Juice from one orange, about 1/2 cup
2 Tbs olive oil
2 Tbs olive oil
2 tsp rice vinegar
scant 1/2 tbs poppy seeds
1 tsp honey
pinch of garlic powder
salt to taste

Combine ingredients in a jar with a tight fitting lid and shake well. Taste, adjust seasonings as desired. Depending on the amount of citrus juice, you can add a bit more oil or vinegar to balance the flavors. Add more honey if you want additional sweetness. In addition to adding flavor, the honey helps keep the dressing from separating. Using lime and/or grapefruit juice changes this dressing into something new and different.
