I have a slight addiction to honey mustard salad dressing. It all started last year in the dorms at lunch. Often times, the only edible things were the salad bar and the soft serve machine (that incredible vanilla nectar probably powered 70% of my triathlon team workouts). The salad dressing I got literally everyday was the honey mustard. Over summer, I was looking for the certain brand that they bought and I finally found it at Costco. Looking at the ingredients, I was very sad and decided to make my own healthy version.
The dressing in the photo is a bit more runny than I prefer, but you can tweak it to match your tastes!
Chop 1/3 of a clove of garlic into tiny pieces. Put it into a small bowl.
Add 2 tsps white balsamic vinegar. Mash the garlic a bit.
Add 1 tbsp honey.
Add 1 tbsp dijon mustard.
Add 1 tsp canola oil. Give it a dash of salt and a twist of freshly ground pepper. Stir vigorously and enjoy!
Mustard * Improves digestion (by stimulating increased saliva production) and contains the same antioxidants as turmeric (which gives it its yellow color)!
Canola oil * Healthy monounsaturated fats!
Honey * Raw honey contains many beneficial enzymes and bacteria and has also been found to be anti-bacterial
