This Honey Dijon Salad Dressing comes from my friend Molly. She credits a friend of hers for the recipe but I credit Molly since she was the one I snatched it from. The ingredients are quite simple. Here’s what you’ll need to have on hand:
- Olive oil or avocado oil
- Apple cider vinegar
- Dijon mustard
That’s it! Only 5 ingredients!
What type of salads go best honey dijon vinaigrette dressing?
My favorite combo to add this dressing to is red leaf lettuce, apples, Craisins and toasted almonds. If I would have had feta on hand, that would have been tossed over the top but, well, life didn’t allow for feta at the time. Regardless, it was a delicious salad.
It also goes great with spinach based salads and even with chicken!
