Lemon Poppyseed Dressing

There are many reasons to make salad dressings at home. Among my top reasons are that homemade salad dressing is super easy to make. I love that you can control the ingredients used, and my number one reason is that it’s a fun way to enjoy being creative in the kitchen.

If you’ve ever made a homemade salad dressing, you might have wondered why you ever bought bottled processed salad dressings at all?

For most, I’m sure that it’s a matter of time, convenience, and how high nutrition ranks in your priorities.

But what if I could show you a few positive reasons for making your own homemade dressings that may change your mind forever?

  1. Besides being simple to make, homemade salad dressings tend to be easier on your pocketbook. Most bottled and processed dressings will set you back $4-5 a bottle compared to $2-3 to make a comparable amount.
  2. Homemade salad dressings also tend to be healthier,
  3. Have fewer preservatives, chemicals and artificial flavorings
  4. They typically taste better,
  5. They contain less sugar,
  6. And offer your gut some awesome qualities like better absorption of real vitamins and minerals

Here’a a tasty homemade Lemon Poppyseed Dressing that I encourage you to try.

Lemon Poppyseed Dressing
A healthy dressing option; it’s perfect for spring and summer salads, fruits, and vegetables! Lemon Poppyseed Dressing is an equally delicious complement to pasta, quinoa, and wild rice to add a punch of flavor. Even better yet is that it’s one of my go-to favorite homemade salad dressings for whenever I want to drop a few pounds.

Made with freshly squeezed lemon juice, the best extra virgin olive oil you can find, spicy Dijon mustard, just a little sugar, a bit of sweet onion, and of course, poppy seeds. It’s the perfect blend of sweet and tangy. And if you’re like me, you’ll find plenty of ways to use this vinaigrette dressing recipe.

So grab a small bowl and your favorite whisk to whip up, and emulsify this healthy, satisfying, and super easy to make lemon poppyseed dressing in about five minutes. It’s a quick little salad dressing, with minimal ingredients. Who could ask for more? Enjoy!
