This creamy Lemon Poppy Seed/Khus Khus salad dressing is perfect for a veggie loaded salad you would want to have as lunch or dinner. This dressing is a great way to spruce up your salad.

This salad dressingrecipe I am giving here is a low carb version.
What I like in a homemade dressing is that you get to customize everything from the spice, salt and sugar. And this salad doesn’t take any time at all. It is just a add everything to blender and blitz kind of dressing. This salad dressing comes together in just about 5 minutes. It stays well in the refrigerator upto 10 days and can be used as and when required.

  1. I could not find black poppy seeds her, otherwise they would have provided a great contrast. Anyway this doesn’t affect the taste or flavour in anyway.
  2. If you prefer a sweeter dressing, add one more tablespoon of sugar powder.
