Sweet Onion Poppyseed Salad Dressing - Candida Diet Friendly, Paleo, Sugar-free



If you have been following along my blog and my Sunday week in review, then you know that I eat A LOT OF SALAD. I'm pretty sure most people that eat clean, low-carb, Wheat-Belly, Paleo or Candida diets eat a lot of salad.

No hardship. I love salad. But the restrictiveness of this Candida diet can make salad dressings pretty limited. And I was getting lazy and making the same coconut vinegar and EVOO blend over and over and over. And it was getting boring. And when I get bored with food I start cheating. And when I cheat I don't feel good. And my Candida starts to win.

So I decided I better get busy making a new dressing that could make a salad satisfying again. So I'm not just using my salad as fuel and then searching for something else (insert cheat) to keep me satisfied.

This little recipe did just that. A nice change of pace. Sugar-free. Low-carb. Paleo, Candida-diet friendly. Gluten-free. Dairy-free. And even given all that it is still tasty. Delicious.

It gets some sweetness from the Stevia and the onions. And some nice creaminess from the oil and pureed onion. I was missing a creamy dressing.

It actually tasted best when it had a chance to sit overnight so make it in advance if you can.  The flavors blend and develop if you can wait.

Hope you enjoy it as much as I am and this helps you stay sugar-free and healthy! No matter what kind of clean diet you are trying to follow.

  1. What would be a good substitute for coconut vinegar?

    1. If you are not on the Candida diet/not avoiding vinegars you can use whatever type you want. Apple cider?
