Honey & Mustard Dressing

Summer is all about salads so having a tasty dressing is essential. This Honey & Mustard Dressing is delicious drizzled over so many salads and is so easy to make. 

Who doesn’t love a salad in the summer? When the weather is warm we find ourselves craving lighter and fresher dishes that take minimal effort. But every tasty salad needs an equally tasty dressing. 

Despite having the best of intentions, sometimes shop bought salad dressings are packed full of fat which isn’t great. They also tend to contain preservatives and other things which bring no nutritional benefits. By making dressings yourself, you know exactly what is going into it and can leave out all of the unnecessary ‘stuff’. 

I’m not a nutritionist (obviously) but I believe that olive oil is considered to be a healthy dietary fat. This is why although this Honey & Mustard Dressing may not be particularly low in calories, it does provide healthy fats to your diet. 

One of it’s main advantages is just how quick and easy it is to make. It is literally a case of adding the ingredients to a jar and shaking them up; anyone can make this. By making it in a jar, you can store it in the fridge in the same jar which is handy and time saving.  

This Honey & Mustard Dressing would go so well with a number of salads. One of my favourite salads to drizzle this over is my Simple Chicken & Bacon Salad
