I get quite a few requests for my homemade Honey-Mustard Vinaigrette. Some of you may roll your eyes with even the thought of a homemade dressing. I know Kraft makes 10,000 varieties of salad dressings, but let me share with you the benefits of making your own dressing. ONE: It is WAY cheaper. TWO: It is made with ingredients from a well-stocked pantry. THREE: It is healthy and delicious. FOUR: It is made in about two minutes flat, so easy. FIVE: It is WAY cheaper (did I mention that already?). Not to mention this dressing is perfect on practically any salad from a fruit and nut salad to your basic tossed salad. Your taste buds and pocket books will thank me after you've mixed up this yummy concoction.
Since it is Valentine's Day I thought that this Honey Undress Me (Sheesh! I need to get my mind out of the gutter!), ok I've climbed out, I mean Honey-Mustard Dressing would be the perfect addition to any salad that you may be making for your loved ones, and in the appropriate context (see: Disclaimer) it may turn into undressing by the night's end. I had to say that; Happy Valentine's Day!
1 cup of good olive oil
3-4 tbsp of honey
1 tbsp of white wine vinegar
2 tbsp of honey mustard
pinch of salt
1 tsp of cracked black pepper
Pour all ingredients in a small bowl and whisk really well until all ingredients are incorporated. Taste and see if you need to make any adjustments by adding a little more honey, mustard, or vinegar. Pour on your salad of choice and mix.
