I don't buy a lot of bottled salad dressing because it's just so easy to make and it tastes so much better. (I do live with a couple of serious Hidden Valley Ranch lovers though, so I do keep that stocked in the frig.)
I found this recipe for Honey Mustard dressing on anoregoncottage.com. As you might assume, the key ingredients are honey and mustard - along with a few other things. It's super simple to make and it's really yummy. I make mine in a smoothie blender because it's easy to clean and a perfect size for salad dressing.
Honey Mustard Dressing
- 1/4 c. honey
- 1/4 c. Dijon
- 1 clove garlic, minced
- 2 Tb. lemon juice
- 1/3 c. rice vinegar (or apple cider vinegar)
- 3/4 c. olive oil
- 1/4 tsp. salt (or to taste)
Combine all the ingredients except the olive oil and salt in a blender (or food processor). Blend until mixed, about 30 seconds.
With the motor running, add the olive oil in a slow stream, blending until the dressing is smooth and creamy.
Taste and add salt if desired.
Pour into a squeeze bottle.
Serve on the salad of your choice.
I LOVE summer salads. Romaine, spinach, cucumbers, bell peppers, tomatoes, pumpkin seeds and honey mustard dressing - oh my! This salad just screams summer. Bring it on.
