Drizzle, toss and enjoy this fabulous CREAMY POPPY SEED DRESSING!

It’s not surprising that this CREAMY POPPY SEED DRESSING is a repeat contender for salad dressing of the year. Not only is it perfect on our LAYERED SPINACH SALAD, but we’ve been enjoying it on other salad creations with great success. It’s an easy recipe and very delicious!

Nothing complicated in making it, but here are a few tips:

Ingredients for Creamy Poppy Seed Dressing

FRIDGE MAGNET

Whenever I make this salad dressing, I think of it as fridge-friendly since so many of the ingredients are already there. The creaminess comes from sour cream and mayonnaise, and milk is used right at the end to thin it out to your taste. The other ingredients are all standard pantry fare.

All of the ingredients in the bowl

POPPY SEEDS

Going heavy with the poppy seeds in this recipe are as much about flavour as it is about appearance. Keeping poppy seeds on hand is a smart move; you’ll be crafting this dressing recipe again and again.

GO FORWARD

Once you’ve made the CREAMY POPPY SEED DRESSING, store it in an airtight container, canning jar or dressing bottle. Give it a solid shake before use and you’ll be good to go.

Although we often think of pairing a POPPY SEED DRESSING with spinach salad, don’t stop there. I recently dressed a package of prepared coleslaw with it – fabulous. It also found its way onto our SIMPLE SALAD and can even be enjoyed drizzled over sliced tomatoes or avocados. 

If making salad dressings from scratch is your thing, we have more just like this. Try our MUSTARD VINAIGRETTE, our extremely popular ASIAN SALAD DRESSING and one of my go-to favourites, RASPBERRY DRESSING. 

CREAMY POPPY SEED DRESSING will do your next salad proud!
