Homemade Poppyseed Dressing & Costco Superfood Salad Knock Off

I stayed with my parents for a few days around thanksgiving recently. They had this really yummy salad that was from costco that we ate a FEW times. I liked it because of the bitterness of the greens contrasted with the sweet creamy dressing. When I got home I vowed to recreate it at home, with paleo ingredients. After all, that’s what i do!

The first thing to take care of was the dressing. I decided to use homemade mayo to add the creaminess, and followed Zenbelly’s recipe for mayo, but the one from her cookbook. It involves adding a bit of water to the mayo, and I love the texture that was produced. It’s like this mayo of mine, minus the mustard and plus a tbsp of water. Your favourite mayo recipe will suffice though. I make mine with avocado oil that I also happen to get from costco!

The salad was easy. Chop up some brussel sprouts and some cabbage and call it a day. The original salad also had kale but I find that that would be a lot of greens to eat through for 1 person before they went bad. You could add kale to this salad if you have some on hand though!

The toppings consist of pepitas (pumpkin seeds) and dried raisins or cranberries. I chose raisins as I have an easier time finding clean varieties of these.

In the end you have one delicious salad that combines tangy, creamy, bitter, sweet, and crunchy. It’s a winner!

Obviously salad recipes are easy peasy but this one is all about the dressing. I really hope you enjoy this one and try it out! It’s a cool way to use more fall produce while still enjoying a raw meal. This tastes great as a side dish with any of your favourite cuts of meat or just on it’s own as well. Enjoy!
