honey Mustard dressing/dip

Balsamic, Greek, and oil and vinegar dressings – STAND DOWN!

There’s a new kid in town and she is waking up your flavour buds with a one two punch combo of sweet and tangy!

With just five ingredients that you probably already have on hand, you can confidently walk by that $10 salad dressing at the grocery store knowing this simple and delicious combination is available to you at a moments notice.

This is a recipe I travel with.

Let it also be known that I reuse my jars wherever it is I find myself in the world.

Once my honey container goes down to 1/4 full, !boom! it’s honey mustard dressing time.

what you need

  • Jar (250ml size) with lid
  • Fine grater or garlic press for the garlic (I’m not a fan of garlic presses because of the wasted goodness but you do you.


  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup Dijon style mustard or yellow mustard or a combo of both equaling 1/4 cup
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice or vinegar or a combo of both equaling 1/4 cup
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • Salt and pepper to taste

this is how we do it

Put everything into a jar and shake it up.

Taste and adjust items to your liking.

I will on occasion add dried oregano and basil for a more Greek style dressing.

If you’d like a more dippy, saucy version try this:

Honey Mustard Dipping Sauce

1/2 cup of mayo

2 tbsp each: Dijon, yellow mustard, and honey

1 tbsp lemon juice

1 clove garlic, finely grated

S & P to taste

Every recipe is customizable by you.

If you don’t love it as is ask yourself:

  • Is something missing? Salt, tanginess ( lemon or vinegar) or sugar to bring the flavours together not necessarily to sweeten
  • Is something overpowering? Up the levels of the other flavours
  • How’s the consistency for what your using it for? Adjust accordingly.

Relax. Enjoy the process. Play with your food!
