Lemon Poppy Seed/Khus Khus Salad Dressing

 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 dressing is a low carb version. 
What I like in a home made 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.

2. Now add the Poppy seeds and give another pulse for 30 seconds. The dressing is ready to use now. Store in a bottle and refrigerate.This can also be used as sauce for burgers and other breads. 


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.
