You will never go back to store-bought dressing again. This healthy honey mustard dressing is the perfect combination of tangy and sweet and can be whipped up in just minutes.
So you guys know that I’m a big fan of homemade condiments to make eating a real food diet more interesting. Nothing turns regular old chicken and veggies into a crazy good dinner like an awesome sauce or dressing. I try to make at least one or two condiments per week to keep in the fridge for my family.
A good honey mustard dressing is super versatile in the kitchen. It goes well with any green salad. I especially love it on mildly spicy greens like arugula. It’s also the perfect dipping sauce for grilled chicken. Little humans love to dip, don’t they? I also love to use it as a dip for fresh veggie sticks since I’m sometime lazy and will eat just carrots, cucumber, and red peppers for lunch with a bit of protein. Healthy eating doesn’t have to be complicated.
Oh, and the best part is that it only has 5 ingredients. All things you probably have in your kitchen RIGHT NOW: mustard, honey, lemon, oil, and salt. Healthy real food ingredients without any of the junk in store-bought dressings.
I have to confess that I may have had this dressing 3 times today: on my greens at breakfast, on my salad at lunch, and as a dip for my chicken at dinner. That’s what happens when you make a double batch for photography purposes.
