Strawberry Poppyseed Salad Dressing | Keto | Low Carb | Paleo | Vegan
Updated: Jun 9, 2019
Calling all strawberry lovers ... you need to try this Strawberry Poppyseed Salad Dressing! April through June is of the perfect time of year to make this dressing since it is generally the natural peak season for locally grown farm fresh strawberries . But honestly you can make this any time of year with fresh berries from your grocery. I have made this dressing several times using different sweeteners. The dressing can be adapted to your diet by using the sweeteners that work best for you. For this recipe liquid sweeteners/syrups work best.
For those following a keto/low carb/sugar-free diet, there are a variety of sugar-free thick liquid sweeteners and syrups to choose from. I've listed the syrups/sweeteners II like best for this dressing. For those following a Paleo or Whole 30 use natural sweeteners such as honey or pure maple syrup. Yes, maple syrup!! The maple flavoring gives an amazing twist to this dressing. Don't worry keto/low carb/sugar-free friends I have found a fantastic sugar-free maple syrup alternative to pure maple syrup. See the recipe below.
Strawberry Poppyseed Salad Dressing | Keto | Low Carb | Paleo
Ingredients: 1/2 cup olive oil (or avocado oil)
1/3 cup red wine vinegar
1/4 cup strawberries, stems removed
1 tablespoon poppyseeds
1/4 teaspoon salt
Paleo/Whole 30/Vegan: Use honey or pure maple syrup in place of the listed sugar-free syrups
In a food processor or blender combine all the ingredients; cover and process until blended and the strawberries are liquefied. Refrigerate in an airtight container. Will keep for approximately 2 weeks. Note: Sukrin FIber Syrup is more of a honey flavoring, the ChocZero Vanilla Syrup has a delicious subtle vanilla flavoring (not over powering, somewhat like a honey).
