I love making my own salad dressing from scratch. Mostly because I get bored with the same salad dressing all the time on my salad, so the bottles of store bought dressing tend to go to waste.

Whenever I try a different flavour, even if we like it, we don’t use it all before the  best before date.

So making salad dressing from scratch is definitely the way to go.

Plus, homemade salad dressing is so quick and easy, it seems rather silly to buy it most of the time.

And if you want a specific flavour of dressing with your salad, but don’t want to go to the store, you can probably make it with ingredients you already have on hand.

That is definitely true for this honey mustard salad dressing. It will literally take you five minutes to make, and you quite likely have all the ingredients you need for it already.

I know I always have these ingredients on hand, so it’s definitely one I always make instead of buying ready made.

It’s so easy and delicious – we love this honey mustard salad dressing!

How to make Honey Mustard Salad Dressing:

  • Homemade salad dressings are so easy to make – simply throw everything in a jar with a tight fitting lid and shake until combined. I like using this shaker cup as it has measurements on the side so you can measure everything as you add it, and it pours easily too. But a mason jar with a lid or a measuring cup with a whisk will work just as well.
  • I prefer fresh garlic for homemade salad dressings, but if you don’t have any you can replace the clove of minced garlic (or pressed through a garlic press) with 1/2 teaspoon of garlic powder.
  • This honey mustard salad dressing will keep well in the fridge for up to 2 weeks, simply shake it to recombine everything before using it.
  • My favourite salad to serve with this honey mustard salad dressing is this Chopped Salad with Grilled Chicken.
