Honey & Mustard Salad Dressing

Spruce up any boring, old salad with this fabulous salad dressing.

Spruce up any boring, old salad with this fabulous salad dressing.

If you are a long-time reader you would know by now I’m not that keen on salad. My first question would be:

“What’s in it?”

Because heaven forbid if it’s just lettuce with a few slices of cucumber I’ll just twirl around and keel over on the spot.

Second question:

“Is there a dressing to go with the salad?”

What I really want to hear is that there is one and that it’s Honey & Mustard because it’s my favourite. I am yet to meet someone who doesn’t like it!

The great thing about this salad dressing is that you can easily multiply the ingredients, i.e. make a big batch, pour it into a glass bottle with a screw top (an old ketchup bottle would do!) and stick it in the fridge. Meals can then be made in a jiffy; shredded lettuce, tomato slices, leftover roast chicken, a boiled egg if you like and voila! Once I even made potato salad but thought mayonnaise would make it too heavy and used this dressing instead and let me tell you it was divine!

Honey & Mustard Salad Dressing
Serves 4-6
Prep Time: 5 mins – Cooking Time: None
  • 30ml (2 tbsp) cider vinegar
  • 15ml (1 tbsp) clear honey
  • 15ml (1 tbsp) wholegrain mustard
  • 45ml (3 tbsp) cold-pressed rapeseed oil
  • 30ml (2 tbsp) vegetable or corn oil
  • salt and freshly ground pepper
  1. Whisk the cider vinegar, honey, mustard and oils together in a bowl or shake in a screw-topped jar or bottle. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Rapeseed is also known as Canola. If you can’t find any at your local shop you can substitute it with extra virgin olive oil.

    I prefer American dressing, but it’s hard to get and the manufactured dressings just taste eww.
    But I’ll definitely give yours a try. :) … When I’m eating salad next time, that is. Because I’m not keen on it either and I actually prefer if there is less lettuce in it and more other stuff, like mushrooms, corn, cucumber, bell pepper and so on. ^^

      Has anyone added poppyseeds to this recipe? If so, how many? My favorite honey-mustard dressing is from Red Robin and it has poppyseeds in it. I can buy some at Red Robin but homemade would probably be better.

        Hey, Judith. There’s nothing stopping you from adding poppy seeds to the dressing. So go on, give it a try!

    I’m totally with you. I think Homer Simpson spoke for all of us when he said “You don’t make friends with salad”. Will have to give this dressing a try.

    This is the best 5 minutes Honey and Mustard salad dressing I have ever tasted. I have tried it tonight on a green salad, my next shot will be to use it on a hot chicken salad. I can almost see it! Yummy.

      Thanks for the positive feedback, Richard! This Honey and Mustard dressing will work with almost anything. My favourite way of using it with pan fried salmon on top of buttered egg noodles. Just sprinkle the sauce over or stir it all in!
