A homemade salad dressing is just what you need on top of a fresh summer salad. This poppy seed dressing is such a classic low-carb recipe for salads especially greens with berries and grilled chicken.

This creamy, sweet and zingy sugar-free poppy seed dressing takes just a couple of minutes and is a great addition to almost any salad! Try it, I’m sure you’ll love it!

You can use a keto-friendly mayonnaise made with healthy fats such as avocado oil. Or you can make your own mayo - it’s easy!

Do you stir or shake the ingredients in the jar? How do you mix?
