This Creamy Greek Yogurt Poppyseed Dressing mixes up in minutes and has a tangy-sweet flavor that’s perfect your favorite leafy greens.
When it comes to salad dressings, are you Team Creamy or Team Vinaigrette?
I was Team Vinaigrette all the way, eating my near-daily bowl of leafy greens with a dressing I boldly dubbed the Everyone Loves This Vinaigrette (Because seriously? They do! Make that dressing for a dinner party and someone WILL ask you for the recipe, I swear.)
But change is a good thing. And salad dressing burn-out is real. So now this creamy poppyseed dressing is a fixture in my fridge.
This poppyseed dressing recipe uses a base of mayo plus plain Greek yogurt. The yogurt and apple cider vinegar give this dressing a nice tangy flavor, but there’s also some honey for sweetness. It’s perfect on spinach or any sturdy green such as kale.
To make a simple spinach salad like I show here, top a bed of baby spinach with sliced strawberries, chopped nuts such as walnuts or pecans, and a soft cheese like goat or feta. Add a spoonful or two of this Creamy Greek Yogurt Poppyseed Dressing and toss well.
