Creamy Lemon Poppyseed Dressing

  • Prep Time: 5 mins

  • Yield: 1 cup 1x


This creamy dressing is equal parts tangy and sweet, along with the classic flavour combo of lemon and poppyseed. It's great on both sweet and savoury salads - try it on a classic green salad, or on a fruit salad.


  • ¼ cup Greek yogurt
  • ¼ cup mayonnaise
  • 3 tbsp fresh-squeezed lemon juice
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp lemon zest
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 2 tsp poppy seeds
  • Salt and pepper


  1. In a small bowl, whisk together the yogurt, mayonnaise, lemon juice, olive oil, lemon zest, sugar and poppy seeds until smooth. Toss with your favourite salad, or transfer to a mason jar and refrigerate until ready to use.


If you're not using the dressing right away, it will keep up to 2 weeks in the refrigerator. Make sure to give it a good shake before using, as the poppy seeds will settle to the bottom of the jar over time.
