Crazy Simple Healthy Poppyseed Dressing Recipe


Don’t you just love recipes you can put together in a few, short minutes? I do, and this poppyseed dressing fits the bill! 9 easy ingredients that don’t have to emulsify or simmer or anything. Just whisk and drizzle on your favorite salad, like our Simple Gourmet Peach Blueberry Salad! Or try it drizzled over fruit, mixed into chopped, grilled chicken, or as a dip for grilled shrimp.


First, this recipe is so easy, you can stop buying yours at the store. Second, so many poppyseed dressing recipes have corn syrup or other refined sweeteners. This recipe uses healthy honey, and if you make your own mayonnaise, it’s a source of healthy fats as well. You won’t miss the sugar. Though I thought I might, but I love it made with honey! I use Daisy sour cream, and though it’s a commercial source of dairy and not at the top of my healthy foods list, it’s one of my compromise items. Daisy sour cream is simple cultured cream and nothing else.


It’s this easy. Grate your onion. Put all of the ingredients in a bowl, and whisk. That’s it. The end.

When making this recipe, taste it, and decide if you need more tang from vinegar, more sweet from honey. Too mayonnaisy? Add a bit more sour cream. Too thick? Add a little milk or water to thin. See? Make it your own!

Blissfully yours,
