I love Salads

Me and salads, we’re best friends. I have at least one salad a day, sometimes two, because I love them so much. I love that you can pretty much throw anything into a bowl with some greens and {voila!} a complete meal.

Proper Keto Salad Dressing

I do have a few structured salads, like my House, Cobb, and Chicken Bacon Salads, but I often just throw together whatever I happen to have in the fridge/pantry (usually hard boiled eggs, almonds, crumbled cheese, and bell peppers) and drizzle on some oil and vinegar.

But sometimes I like to make a proper salad. And a proper salad needs a proper dressing. This Creamy Poppy Seed Dressing has been in my rotation for quite some time and is a kid-favorite around here.

The adorable little seeds, combined with the creamy base and the hint of sweetness really takes a salad from “meh” to “wow!“.

  1. Add all ingredients to a medium bowl and whisk until combined and smooth. Transfer to a glass sauce bottle and store in the fridge for up 2-3 weeks.
  2. May need to shake before each use, since the poppy seeds tend to settle to the bottom.

Serving Suggestion

  1. This dressing is delicious on our Chicken Bacon Salad.
