Homemade Honey Dijon Mustard Dressing

Salad dressing is one of those things we’re all most likely to just buy from the store, but it’s so quick, easy and delicious to make your own homemade honey dijon mustard dressing, you’ll wonder why you ever bothered with store bought dressing.

Pre-made, store bought salad dressings contain food acids, vegetable gums and added sugar. By making your salad dressing at home you’ll know exactly what ingredients are in it and you’ll be able to avoid any food additives.

The good news is you only need a few ingredients (that you most likely already have in your pantry) and this very easy homemade honey mustard dressing can be ready in minutes for you to enjoy!

There are two types of honey mustard dressing we commonly make and we couldn’t decide which one to share with you – so we’re going to give you both! They’re pretty similar but one has a couple more ingredients and requires the use of a blender, while the other is so simple you can whip it up everyday!

Let’s start with our easy homemade honey mustard dressing:

If you’re making for 1-2 people use about a tablespoon of each ingredient (except the salt and pepper). If you’re catering for a larger crowd you could use ⅓ of a cup or even ½ a cup of each of the main 4 ingredients, depending on how many people you are serving and how much dressing you like on your salad.

You can also keep the leftovers in the jar in the fridge for 3 weeks or so – just give it another shake up before you use it again.
