Healthy Poppy Seed Dressing

Healthy Poppy Seed Dressing recipe with Greek yogurt and honey, that is light, creamy and tastes just as store bought.

As soon as I did a first taste test this healthy poppy seed dressing reminded me exactly of a bottled version I stopped buying years and years ago. Creamy and sweet, with a hint of onion and a sea of poppy seeds. There is not much more to say about this dressing except you gotta make it and pour over kale blueberry salad or grilled chicken salad.

  1. Had some of this tonight on my salad. Not sure I’ve ever had a poppyseed dressing before, so I don’t really have anything to compare this to. Regardless, this is really good! The flavor is somehow light and yet very present. The sweet onion really stands out. Thanks so much for the recipe! It’s only the second dressing I’ve made with Greek yogurt. 🙂

    1. That’s right – light flavour with a slight hint of sweet onion. I had a store bought one probably twice in my life. Glad you are enjoying.:) Greek yoghurt is amazing for salad dressing and dips!
