How to make homemade honey and mustard dressing

This best store bought bandage uses really healthy ingredients so you can feel good about what you eat. This is what you will need:

  • The mustard plays an important role. We prefer to use the creamy Dijon mustard for this, but the whole grain or even the regular yellow mustard will work instead.
  • Honey balances the tanginess of the mustard. We love using local raw honey.
  • Apple cider vinegar It combines mustard with honey and makes it a spectacular salad dressing. When buying apple cider vinegar, we looked for the bottles with "the mother" still in the bottle (like Braggs), as they have more flavor. Other types of vinegar may work here (like white wine vinegar), but we prefer apple cider vinegar for its flavor.
  • The olive oil It makes the dressing silky and luxurious. It also adds flavor.
  • Fresh lemon juice It is optional but highly recommended. Makes the dressing jump. I like to add the juice of one or two lemon slices.
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper They are essential.

We found this dressing to be creamy enough and doesn't need any additional ingredients. It is amazing what happens when you beat the mustard with olive oil and vinegar.

A few seconds of shaking turns the dressing into a single emulsified mixture. For a thicker or even creamier dressing, add a little sour cream or plain yogurt.
