I love homemade salad dressings. They are just so easy to make and you can adjust them to taste JUST how you want them to. You not only save money by making them at home but you also save yourself from consuming all those added ingredients that come in store bought dressings.
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. It goes wonderfully with salads that have sweeter ingredients.
My favorite combo with it 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.
After you make this salad dressing, store it in the fridge for up to two weeks. The olive oil will solidify a bit but just set it out at room temperature for 45 minutes or so before you want to use it and it will be back to normal.
Thanks, Molly! Your recipe will be one of my staples for a very long long time!
A simple, tangy salad dressing that tops off sweet salads perfectly!

- 3 tablespoons honey
- 3 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
- 1 tablespoon dijon mustard

- Put all ingredients into a mason jar and give it a good shake!
Store in the refrigerator for up to two weeks. The olive oil may solidify but just set it out at room temperature before serving to give it time to liquefy again.
