This dressing is one of my absolute favorites and is perfect for any salad!



  • 1/4 cup 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


  1. 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.
  2. Serve immediately, and store leftovers in the fridge for up to a week. (Dressing will thicken a bit when chilled.)

Recipe Notes

*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.
