Homemade Creamy Poppy Seed Dressing – Original Recipe


I love to shop at fruit markets and I happened to stop in one that sells a lot of local fruits and vegetables. They had spinach and strawberries on sale. The strawberries are not the ones shipped from the states, picked way too early and ripen on the commute. Rather, these were juicy, melt in your mouth, local strawberries just bursting with flavour and colour. Out of nowhere, I had a craving for creamy poppy seed dressing – strangely something that I’ve never previously enjoyed from the supermarket. So tonight I experimented in the kitchen to make what turned out to be a delightful dressing. As with all of my original recipes, quantities are far from exact – so add or subtract as you like (I made a large batch – but here is what I estimate would be good for a 4-serving salad.

In a food processor, blend until smooth:

3 TBSP Plain Yoghurt

1 1/2 TBSP White Balsamic Vinegar

1 1/2 TBSP Balsamic Vinegar

1 TBSP Vegetable Oil

1 TBSP Honey

1 tsp dijon mustard

1/2 tsp salt (normally I don’t add salt to recipes, but this was needed)

1-2 TBSP water (to create desired consistency)

1-2 TBSP poppy seeds.

Serve with spinach, strawberries and almond slices.
