It may be wishful thinking, but summer is just around the corner and with that comes warmer weather, BBQ season and of course salad season!
That said, if there is one dressing in our house that is always running on “empty” it’s my homemade honey mustard dressing. Not only does this sweet yet savoury dressing spruce up your everyday salad, but it doubles as a marinade for chicken or even as a topping to a power bowl.
The best part is that, unlike the supermarket variety, which tend to have many ‘unnecessary’ ingredients, this one can be whipped up in under 5 minutes and only has 5 ingredients, all of which are ingredients you can pronounce.
Not only does this homemade honey mustard dressing taste delicious, but it’s also full of good fats, since the oil used is avocado oil, which is a staple in our household. Check out the recipe below and let me know what you think!
*Please note: dressing should be kept in the fridge once made.
1/3 cup Raw Natural Honey
3 TBSP Yellow Mustard
2 TBSP Dijon Mustard
2 TBSP Avocado Oil
1-2 TSP Minced Garlic (I tend to just eyeball it and like mine with a little extra kick)
- Add all ingredients to glass container (I use an old honey jar, but a small mason jar would work great too), mix well and store in the fridge until you’re ready to use. It’s seriously that easy!
One of my FAVOURITE ways to use this dressing is drizzling it over lettuce greens, cucumber, tomato, bell pepper, avocado and turkey bacon. Add pumpkin seeds for that extra crunch.
