Vegan Poppy Seed Dressing

Like many other popular salad dressings, poppy seed dressing is a classic. You can buy it in almost every supermarket, but why would you if you can make your own, healthier, cleaner version. 

Vegan Poppy Seed Dressing

Ingredients:
  • 1/2 cup raw cashew nuts, soaked in purified water overnight
  • 1/3 cup poppy seeds, soaked in purified water for about 30 minutes
  • 1 cup virgin olive oil (I used a very strong frantoio olive oil from Tuscany)
  • juice of 1 lemon
  • 1 shallot, roughly chopped
  • 1/2 tsp Celtic sea salt (add more if needed)
  • freshly ground pepper to taste

Method:
  • Place all the ingredients in a bowl of your blender and process on high speed until smooth and creamy. Add purified water or more lemon juice if the dressing turns out too thick. Whiz again.
  • Adjust the taste to your personal liking and serve with your favorite greens. Enjoy in good company!

The dressing stores well in the refrigerator for 3-4 days. Make small batches and use quickly.
