Honey Dijon Vinaigrette. Pair this delicious homemade honey mustard dressing with your favorite salad! We love ours over baby spinach with dried cranberries, sliced almonds, and crumbled feta. Delicious!
When it comes to dressings, I like to be thoroughly assaulted by flavor. Not quite a sucker punch to the taste buds, but pretty darn close.
In order for me to deem a dressing appropriate, it needs to be a little bit sweet, a little bit salty, and enhance any and all veggies I pair it with without overpowering their natural deliciousness. It’s not asking too much.
My past arsenal includes a creamy curry dressing worthy of slathering on everything from salads to rice bowls, a greek vinaigrette that is utterly magical over bell peppers and chickpeas, and a refreshing yet fiery sriracha ranch that takes fish tacos to the next level and then some!
Flavorful dressings FTW!
This zesty vinaigrette rocks our socks!
Looking for a traditional mayo-based honey mustard dressing or dip? For ours we combine equal parts honey, yellow mustard, dijon mustard, and mayo for ours – then adjust the sweetness to taste!
