Honey Dijon Dressing


This dressing is a game-changer for me.

I’ve been on a mission to find a new dressing lately, and this one has surpassed all of my expectations. It’s so delicious, it makes me want to eat salad for every meal of the day!

An upgrade from classic Honey Mustard dressing, this version features a complex blend of ginger, garlic and honey– an unexpected combination that makes my taste buds rejoice with each bite. I realize that not everyone loves ginger, so feel free to use less, to your taste. Either way, the resulting dressing is sure to liven up your next salad!

Honey Dijon Dressing
makes about 1 cup

Adapted from Crazy Sexy Diet

Ingredients:

1/4 cup stone-ground or Dijon mustard
2 Tablespoons apple cider vinegar
2 Tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1 clove garlic
1 tablespoon minced ginger (about 1-inch, peeled)
2 Tablespoons honey*
1/4 teaspoon fine sea salt
1/4 cup water, or more for thinning

Directions:

In a high-speed blender, combine all of the ingredients and blend until smooth and creamy. Adjust the flavors to taste, and add more water if a thinner dressing is desired.

Serve immediately, and store leftovers in the fridge for up to a week. (Dressing will thicken a bit when chilled.)

*Note: I’ve made this dressing with both honey and dates now, and both versions have been delicious. If you prefer using dates as a sweetener, for an extra-boost of fiber, use 2-3 dates plus an additional 1/4 cup of water. For those of you who need to avoid all sugars, use liquid stevia to your taste.

This dressing was a game changer for me too! I’m a honey mustard girl and I have been lamenting the loss of this dressing ever since I have been eating healthier. This dressing of yours has brought a huge smile to my face! Thank you!
