Hei people, I was down with flu. My throat still hurts though and I have to drink some water every 30 minutes else I would start a string of cough that would further pressurize my throat. Infact my throat was bleeding, until 36 hours ago. *Touch wood* I have not been having much of an appetite for the past few days. If you think that I am finally not thinking of food, then you are wrong. I am still getting frequent food hallucinations, from Pasta to Mcdonalds. Omg and that Ben & Jerry’s strawberry cheesecake ice cream!
Since I have not been eating well for the past few days, I was kinda looking forward to eating something I love. Something delicious yet simple so I roasted some vegetables. I love Grilled Vegetables and I have been vocal about it. But it is not the vegetables we gonna be talking about today.
We are talking about
I was supposed to include this recipe with the upcoming post, but I thought that this dressing deserves a post on it’s own. It is after-all the star of this salad. Yes this Lemon Poppyseed Dressing is DEEE-licious. Most store-bought poppyseed dressing are too sweet for my liking, but this is more of a tangy dressing. This dressing is perfect on fruit salads, green salads or you can drizzle it over your grilled chicken or burgers. Yumzz! Although I barely had an appetite, yet this dressing whet my appetite and I could eat a substantial amount. 5 reasons as to why you have to make this.
- It takes only 5 minutes.
- Uses pantry ingredients.
- It is lower in calories and fat than the store bought ones.
- It goes well with almost anything, from vegetables to meat and seafood.
- Because I ♥ it.
