Poppy Seed Cole Slaw Dressing
Poppy seed dressing, perfect for cole slaws, cabbage salads, and of course kale! Goes great with spinach, oranges, cucumber, avocado and red onion too!

I love a tangy dressing on my cabbage salad or cole slaw! These types of salads hold up well for a pot luck or BBQ.

Does anyone do ”potlucks” any more?

According to www.wikipedia.com, the potluck may have come from the english words “pot” and “luck” or the indigenous word, “potlatch”, signifying a community meal. Indeed potluck summons up images of a meal that is made by many, maybe among a 1970’s shag carpet, no? Another possible origin may have come from Thomas Nashe, a playwright, who described a potluck as “the luck of the pot” when talking about food provided by guests, or provided for guests.

Either way, when we bring something for others to enjoy, we are creating community and connection, through food!

The original recipe I have, iike most of my recipes, came from “i don’t know where” and had 1/3 cup of sugar in it. Now, you know, I don’t vilify any food, and yes, sugar passes my lips. I DO find I feel pretty sick when I over consume sugar. Plus, if you’re trying to heal your gut, sugar is not helpful.

The sugar in the recipe is replaced by my favourite stevia from Omica Organics. I’m lucky enough to be able to give my clients a coupon code for their amazing products! Don’t like Stevia? That’s ok! Add in your favourite sweetener to taste. I’m talking maple syrup, honey, coconut sugar … not artificial sweeteners.

If you have the origin of this recipe-contact me! I want to give credit where credit is due!

1 tsp dry mustard
1 tsp salt
1/3 cup white or 🍎 cider or malt vinegar
1/2 small vidalia onion chopped
1 tbsp poppy seeds
10 - 12 drops @omicaorganics stevia


Blend. Enjoy. 😋

Seriously add your natural sweetener to taste. Original recipe called for 1/3 cup sugar. Use maple syrup, honey 🍯, coconut sugar ... just adjust to taste. Looking for more dressing ideas? Try my cranberry balsamic on some fresh greens, tossed with oranges, cucumber, avocado and red onion!
