Low Carb Salad Dressing Recipe with Poppy Seeds

The following low carb salad dressing recipe is made with poppy seeds, Splenda, mayonnaise, vinegar and Half & Half for a delicious and creamy result. A potential problem with low carb diets is that they can often be high in fat, so using reduced-fat mayonnaise helps with this problem. If you are looking for low carb but not low fat (for example, if you are following an Atkins diet and looking for a good Atkins salad dressing recipe) then you could use regular mayonnaise here. It is up to you which kind you go for. Remember you will only be having a tablespoon or two of this with your salad which is really very little.

The poppy seeds are an unusual ingredient and as well as looking interesting in the finished low carb sugar free salad dressing, they do add a nice crunch. If you cannot find poppy seeds you can omit them, else replace them with something similar. An Asian style salad would be good with sesame seeds instead of the poppy seeds. If you want to use these, toast them (cook them in a dry pan over a low heat, tossing often, until golden brown) before adding them to the sauce; the flavor will be much more intense that way.

Eating a low-carb diet does not mean you have to miss out on salad dressings. In fact, since a lot of them are based on mayonnaise, sour cream, oil, vinegar, and ingredients like that, a lot of salad dressings are naturally low in carbohydrates. The problem is when you buy commercial dressings from the store and find sugar and other ingredients on the label you do not want to have. You do not have to miss the sweet taste though, but have it in the form of Splenda or similar rather than sugar. Try this creamy dressing over mixed leaves, adding some crumbled cheese, strawberries and chicken to the plate perhaps.
