This recipe for Creamy Chia Seed Fruit Salad Dressing is one that came from my mom. Growing up whenever we had a fresh fruit in the summer time, my mom always dressed it with this creamy and sweet dressing. She would use poppy seeds instead of Chia Seeds, but since I had Chia Seeds on hand, I decided to try it with those instead. You may think that sour cream and fruit don't go together, but after you try it, you'll realize that it tastes like cheesecake mixed with fresh fruit. :)

Ingredients needed to make your Creamy Chia Seed Fruit Salad Dressing Recipe:

  • Fresh fruit cut into bite size pieces (I used strawberries, cantaloupe, and grapes)
  • 1 8 oz container of light sour cream
  • 3 tablespoons of honey
  • 1 tablespoon of Chia Seeds


To make this fruit salad dressing, start by adding all 8 oz of light sour cream to a large mixing bowl.

2. Add one tablespoon of chia seeds.

3. Then add 3 tablespoons of honey. You can add a bit more honey if you like your dressing sweeter - give it a taste and add as much honey as your palate desires. I personally think 3 tablespoons is just perfect.

4. Stir these three ingredients until it is smooth.

5. Pour the dressing over your fruit and gently mix until the fruit is covered. That's it - it's done! How easy!!!

Serve it cold. This makes a wonderful side dish for any summer lunch or light dessert! My husband describes this as liquid cheesecake on top of the fruit. It truly is divine and oh-so-easy to make!!!
