Creamy Lemon Poppy Seed Dressing is perfect for a holiday salad or an everyday low carb meal. It’s is the perfect addition to any salad.
Now the hot days are coming we eat many more salads and I think that this dressing is just a great way to spruce up a spring or summer salad!
My Lemon Poppyseed Dressing is keto, low carb, and sugar-free. Most of the storebought dressings that you buy have so many sugars on them. It’s almost always better to make your own. And it really doesn’t take a lot of time if you have the ingredients.
The lemon poppy seed combo is a magical pair. I love my keto lemon poppyseeds muffins, but it’s a whole new game when you turn it into a dressing and pour it on top of all your favorite summer salads. This lemon poppyseed salad dressing creamy and sweet and comes together in about 5 minutes!
If you’re making keto salad dressing for the first time, don’t worry! It’s super-simple and so worth the small amount of effort it takes to make your own.
Homemade is always best, and this dressing is no exception. It keeps well int he fridge so you can make a large batch for easy meal prep!
How long will this dressing last in the refrigerator?
I always try to use homemade dressings within 1 week because they don’t have all the chemicals and preservatives. But, within 2 weeks should be fine.
