Poppy Seed Dressing – With just 4 ingredients, this sweet Paleo dressing makes a great addition to any salad. Pour over brussels sprouts or broccoli salad or use in place of mayo in chicken salad.
When attending or hosting a BBQ with friends, I always like to bring a salad. When it’s hot outside, it’s the perfect side dish.
I typically like my salad dressings savory, but I enjoy the sweet flavor of this dressing. This recipe is based on a dressing that comes in a salad kit I buy at Costco. The kale/brussels sprout salad is great, but we usually do not eat the dressing. It has a pretty long list of ingredients and is REALLY sweet. I often eat the salad with my dressing or throw the veggies in with my eggs in the morning.
This recipe only has 4 ingredients, and you can adjust the sweetness to your preference 😊
How to Make Poppy Seed Dressing
This recipe has three simple ingredients.
- Poppy Seeds
That’s it! Whisk the ingredients together in a bowl or jar and season with salt and pepper as needed.
Vinegar - I used champagne vinegar for this recipe, but red wine or apple cider also works.
Mayonnaise - If Paleo, check the label of the mayonnaise to ensure it’s compliant. My favorite brand is the Avocado Oil Mayo by Primal Kitchen.
Honey - I used raw honey, but any honey will work. On a recent trip to Asheville, we purchased some spicy honey that I think would be delicious in this as well!
How to Serve and Store
This recipe makes a delicious salad dressing. Salads with spinach, kale, or brussels sprouts work best. I’m sure you could use an iceberg if you wanted. It’s not my top lettuce choices. Use this dressing in place of mayo in a chicken salad or as a dressing for a fruit salad.
The dressing can be stored in the refrigerator for 4-5 days in an airtight container.
