Honey Mustard Dressing - Dairy & Grain Free

*I made Cobb Salads for Hubby and I this past week and was so glad that I opted to make mine with Honey Mustard Dressing! I'm sharing the recipe again as it's been a little while and it's always great to have some quick recipes to throw together at the last minute! It's NOT Whole30 approved BUT it is Paleo with the lack of dairy, grains and of course, processed sugar!*


I love making my own salad dressings ... I have a much better handle on what I'm consuming when I do so. You know that MOST shelf stable salad dressing are full of funky ingredients, right? So why not just take a few extra minutes and make your own and be healthier?

This is a dressing that I've been making for several years now. Back in the day, it was all about Kens Honey Mustard Dressing ... until I started reading labels. Whoops. The 2nd ingredient was HFCG.


So ... I had to pretty much kick my all time favorite dressing to the curb. *See how it says "Great for DIPPING"?? That's what it was all about for me!

But then I found this great recipe and I've been making it ever since that day!

Here's what  you need:

1/2 c olive oil. I've started to use the "light tasting" stuff for my dressings
3 tbs regular vinegar
2 tbs water
1/4 c honey 
1/4 c grey poupon mustard
1/2 tsp dried basil
1/2 tsp salt
dash of black pepper

Measure all in a glass jar and mix well. This will taste best if you make it in advance and let it sit in refrigerator for about 4 hours before using.  




Go ahead, use it for dipping! Or just keep it simple and use as a salad dressing ... either way, you'll be glad you decided to go healthier!

Looking forward to sharing with some of these GREAT Parties ... go check them out!
