I am usually a ride or die ranch dressing kinda girl. But in the spring and summer, I enjoy a light salad and that calls for a lighter dressing. This Creamy Poppy Seed Dressing fits the bill perfectly!
I love making my own dressings. Not only are they SUPER easy, but you can also customize them to suit your taste preferences.
Poppy Seed dressing has been a long time favorite of mine during the spring and summer months, but store-bought varieties have TONS of sugar, which is something that I try to avoid.
I decided to whip up my own and it turned out so great that I had to share!
What you’ll need for this homemade sugar-free poppyseed dressing:
White Vinegar is pretty standard, but you can also try different kinds of vinegar to change up the taste. Some of my favorites are apple cider vinegar and red wine vinegar.
Dry Ground Mustard or prepared yellow mustard. You can also try some dijon mustard if you prefer.
Onion Powder or finely minced onion.
Avocado Oil or extra light olive oil. In fact, just about any mild-flavored oil would work fine.
Sugar Substitute of your choice. I love to use Lakanto monk fruit blend as I find that it doesn’t have the cooling effect that plain erythritol does, and there is no aftertaste.
Right now you can get 10% off of all Lakanto products with the code “THISMOMSMENU” when you order from the Lakanto Website!
Tips for making the best homemade dressing:
Typically this dressing is made in a blender or using a whisk and a bowl but I actually love to make homemade dressings in a shaker cup. The same kind that you can use to mix protein shakes.
Not only do they make quick and easy work of dressing, but you can store the leftover dressing right in the bottle so you don’t have to dirty a ton of dishes.
This dressing will separate as it sits, but you can just shake it up right before serving and it will come together again nicely.
Store leftover dressing in the fridge for up to 2 weeks.
This dressing goes perfectly with my Red, White, and Blue Summer Salad!
