Sweet and tangy honey mustard dressing that is perfect to liven up any salad. This dressing is full of wholesome ingredients and is free of additives and preservatives often found in store bought brands.
When I was a kid I was a total food sneaker. When my parents were asleep or no one was looking I would shuffle into the kitchen to grab a few bites of my favourite things. Now, being the odd child I was, my favourite things to sneak were leaves of romaine lettuce, banana flavoured medicine and the original All Bran cereal. I know what you’re thinking, what was wrong with me right? I’m not quite sure myself.
My love of these childhood favourites, as strange as they were, have trickled in to my adult life. Although I have given up the banana medicine, I’m still obsessed with lettuce, love All Bran, and bananas are my favourite fruit.
My love of lettuce has led to a love of salad. I eat a salad every single day, for at least one of my meals. More often than not I’ll eat two salads a day. They’re just so delicious. And you know what makes salads even better? You guessed it, this Honey Mustard Dressing.
This dressing is simply the best. It’s sweet and tangy, free of a lot of the additives and preservatives you find in store bought brands, made with ingredients that pack a nutritional punch (hello extra virgin olive oil and raw honey), and is ridiculously simple to prepare. It brings an ordinary green salad to a whole new level. I will be so bold as to claim that even salad haters will become salad lovers with the additional of this dressing. Try it out and let me know what you think, especially if you’re trying to convert a veggie hater
