'This creamy dressing is a great way to top off a green salad tossed with grapes or grapefruit segments,' says Carol Severson from Shelton, Washington. Dijon mustard provides the lively taste.

This dressing is delicious! I was looking for a non-mayo honey mustard and this is it. Use canola oil so it is a healthy choice. The dressing turns out creamy despite using neither mayo nor buttermilk. My kids love the little tubs of honey mustard dressing they offer at all the counter service establishments at Walt Disney World. It turns out that dressing is only available at Disney. This recipe is actually very similar and I know I will get some salads into my kids with this yummy dressing on top. I may try it next time without the garlic as most kids like things smooth. Store this in a shaker bottle in the fridge so you can shake it back up before serving. Read More

I tend to shy away from salad dressings with any sweetness to them, but since the salad I made suggested using a (commercial) honey mustard dressing I decided to give this a try, tho' I immediately chose to reduce the honey to about 2/3 what was called for. I'd call this "gently sweet," and I actually enjoyed it for something different from the classic vinaigrette I typically prefer. I made only a small portion off this for the two of us so the blender method wasn't practical. But if you whisk the oil in slowly, even drop by drop to begin with, you'll get a beautiful, creamy emulsion. Vegetable oil in salad dressings doesn't appeal to me, but I do appreciate its lighter flavor, so I chose grapeseed oil as an alternative. (Olive oil would have been preferable to the vegetable oil too, but would not be as lightly flavored) Read More

I used organic agave syrup instead of honey, as I am watching my blood sugar levels. Very good! Read More

What an amazing recipe! I made some minor changes: honey dijon mustard, apple cider vinegar, and extra virgin olive oil. I kept the amounts the same. I served it at Easter dinner and everyone was blown away and asking for the recipe! Read More

Wow - this took me all of five minutes to put together and it is fantastic! We have been looking for dressing recipes as we have vowed to never use store-bought again and honey mustard is my husband's favorite flavor. This is exactly what a dressing recipe should be - simple, no artificial ingredients, and delicious. Thank you so much for this recipe - I will send it to every salad lover I know. Read More

I was very pleased with the results. I needed dressing in a pinch, was craving honey mustard, and had no mayo. I liked it even better the next day on an apple-walnut green salad. Read More

This is awesome! I did make one change to cut down on the calories. I used firm silken tofu instead of the veggie oil (one cup). I blended it with a couple tablespoons of soy milk. I also switched out the honey for agave nectar and only had yellow mustard in my fridge. Otherwise I followed the posted recipe, adding a pinch of salt and a bit of paprika to give it a little kick. Yum! Read More

AMAZING! My husband loved this. Here is my version: 1/4 raw honey, 1/4 dijon, 1/4 cup total mixture of both white wine vinegar and apple cider vinegar, 2 cloves of garlic, 1 cup of veggie oil. I also ADDED 2 Tbsp lemon juice and 1 tsp of balsamic vinegar to add a little tang. Read More
