This is my take on honey-mustard salad dressing. My husband gives it 5 stars so I thought I would share it with you. Note that I use sweet onion (Walla Walla sweets), but regular onions will do. You can also experiment with amounts to find the taste that suits your palate.

Great, easy dressing! I will definitely make this again. Two things I changed: didn't add the lime zest (didn't have it) and added 2 cloves garlic (as someone suggested). Why buy bottled, when you can make something this good, this quickly. Enjoy! Read More

This is good but my husband and I thought it had too strong a vinegar flavor. I will make this again with less vinegar. Read More

I love this dressing! It beats any honey mustard dressing you will buy or try on this site- the seasoning's make a huge difference most of the other dressings are missings something. Some tips: 1. The type/brand of mustard makes a huge difference. My favorite is grey poupon's course ground dijon mustard. 2. I also use light mayo (kraft or hellmans). 3. You can also sub 1/4-1/2 the mayo with olive oil for a slightly different taste. 4. I also add garlic powder..around a Tablespoon because I love garlic! Fresh garlic would be even better but I'm lazy. Read More

Holy cow! This has to be the favourite dressing at our house- and that's saying something, because we have tried so many dressing recipes. This works well with fat free mayo, too- just make sure you whisk it well to get rid of the lumps. Once I substituted agave nectar for the honey, and that made the dressing quite a bit sweeter. Great either way! Read More

This recipe yields 11 servings but it only took two days for me and my boyfriend to finish! I'll make it again with garlic for a little more kick. Read More

I love this dressing so does everyone else I make it for. The only tweak I made to it was to decrease the apple cider vinegar to 1/4 cup so the dressing is a little thicker and not so vinegary. I like it the original way but my kids like the variation. What I absolutely think is genius is the lime zest it really makes this dressing unique and was why I tried it in the first place. We think it's the bee's knees! Read More

Kind of runny and a little heavy handed with the vinegar. Not a keeper. Read More
