A Poppy Seed Salad Dressing recipe is a quick and easy salad dressing that you won't be able to get enough of. When I tried the dressing, it was so good I wanted to drink it. This version is usually eaten with Strawberry Spinach Salad.
What are Poppy Seeds?
Poppy Seeds have been used in cooking for thousands of years. It's the seed harvested from the opium poppy. The same poppy that morphine and codeine is made from. Poppy Seeds are prohibited in Singapore, Taiwan, UAE, and China. Be careful, while eating poppy seeds, you can test you positive for opiate use in a laboratory setting. It's so minimal, it's not enough to impact or impair you in any way. That's why you can buy it in every supermarket! It's popular in Poppy Seed Bagels and Poppy Seed Rolls.
How to make Poppy Seed Dressing
My Poppy Seed Salad Dressing recipe has sesame seeds in it, which add flavor and texture to the salad dressing. This isn't an Asian Poppy Seed dressing, and has no soy sauce or Asian flavors. Also a dairy free Poppyseed Dressing. Like all salad dressings, so easy to make. Simply whisk the ingredients together and you are ready to go!
When mincing the onion, I simply use a garlic press to squeeze though the onion. It's important not to have chunky pieces of onion in the dressing. You just want the extra zing of onion flavour, without biting into a piece of onion. This is the secret to all my salad dressings.
When I worked in a restaurant in my early 20's, we made this every springtime as soon as the California strawberries came into season in the supermarket. It's part of a Strawberry Spinach Salad with Goat Cheese recipe that works perfectly with the Poppyseeds.
There are many types of Poppy Seed Salad dressings out there. Creamy ones made with mayo or yogurt, others made with mustards, orange juice or balsamic vinegar. This recipe is by far my favorite. Enjoy it with Kale salads, Spinach Salads or even Broccoli Salads. I think it goes well with stronger vegetable type salads, instead of the iceberg varieties. It's a sweet Poppy Seed Salad Dressing that leaves you wanting more.
This Poppyseed SaladDressing recipe is sure to be a hit, delicious and easy to make. You'll never need to buy it again. Bon Appetit! Приятного аппетита!
