5 Ingredient Honey Mustard Dressing

You might like to prepare this honey mustard dressing the next time you are making salad. Although it goes well with all kinds of salad recipe, this honey mustard dressing works especially well on bitter leaves like radicchio or chicory. It would also be good with cold cooked macaroni if you add some finely chopped broccoli, sun-dried tomatoes, and maybe some sliced olives too, for color. You can get creative with this one.

The grapeseed oil gives the dressing a luxuriant golden color, but if you are not worried about that, you can swap it for any other oil you want, although olive oil tends to have quite a strong taste which can overpower the honey flavor. Canola oil makes a good substitute.

Honey mustard dressings are often very sweet and if you dislike the kind you can buy in the store, then why not try this honey mustard dressing recipe and make your own? The recipe is really simple to follow and you need very few ingredients.
