Creamy Poppy Seed Dressing

Creamy Poppy Seed Dressing

While having lunch with a friend recently, I had a green salad with lots of veggies drizzled with a wonderful creamy poppy seed dressing and it was so delicious. I found a recipe on Mom’s Need to Know that sounded really tasty. I adapted it a bit by using less sugar because we don’t like super sweet salad dressings. I re-created it for lunch today and it couldn’t have been easier to make because I had all of the ingredients on hand – I love it when that happens. The dressing was sweet, tangy, and creamy and tasted really fantastic over the crisp green salad. We finally had a sunny day today so eating this salad outside in the sunshine made it taste even better!

  1. Very nice recipe and I am glad you reduced the sugar. Poppy seed dressings are usually very sweet but this sounds just right.

  2. That does sound yummy but I wonder if I can get poppy seeds here other that to plant in the garden!! Have a good weekend Diane

    I love this, I love poppy seeds!!

  4. I realize on reading this that I have never actually had poppy seed dressing!! Crazy. And need to change that.

    In your picture it looks like the finished salad dressing filled a pint jar. I’m just curious, how much salad dressing did your finished recipe make? In my kitchen I use quart jars for everything. If your recipe makes a pint of salad dressing then doubling the recipe should make a quart of dressing. Please let me know at your earliest convenience.

    1. Dr. Blair,

      The recipe makes nearly 1 cup of dressing. I hope this helps.
