Delicious & Healthy Honey Mustard Dressing Recipe

On the last day of a recent trip, I enjoyed a delicious honey mustard dressing on a chicken salad and it brought back a ton of memories of a salad I used to eat all the time. I ate it so much that I had to take a break for a while.

But, it’s back! In fact, I ate this healthy honey mustard dressing on a salad every night for the entire first week I was home.

This healthy honey mustard is great as a dip or on any salad as a dressing.

In fact, it’s good on just about anything.

This recipe is:

Healthy, Clean, Simple, Gluten-Free,
Dairy-Free, Grain-Free, Soy-Free, Nut-Free,
Paleo-Style, 100% Real Food, Delicious

Most store-bought honey mustard dressing is loaded with chemicals and preservatives, but it’s actually really simple to make. You probably already have what you need in your refrigerator. There are a few nuances to keeping it healthy, and of course to making sure that it’s totally delicious.

Let’s talk ingredients:

Star #1: Raw Honey

Choose a local raw honey if you can as it will still contain enzymes and be lower on the glycemic index. Mass produced honey is heated and processed, which destroys it’s enzymes and nutrients, and makes it higher on the glycemic index. Local honey is a bonus as it will contain some local pollen, which can help with seasonal allergies. Just do your best and find the least refined honey that you can buy. Honey from different regions will taste different, find one that you like the taste of.

Star #2: Dijon Mustard

Skip the plain yellow mustard and get a high-quality dijon because it’s already packed with flavor. Sir Kensington’s makes the best dijon mustard I’ve ever tried and they’re not even paying me to say that. It’s also non-GMO verified. It’s a little bit more than other mustards but definitely worth it. You can find it on Thrive Market for a good price or at most grocery stores these days. Whatever you get, just look for something that tastes amazing and isn’t filled with chemicals & preservatives.

Star #3: Apple Cider Vinegar

ACV to the rescue! Apple cider vinegar is alkalizing to your body, aids digestion and has a nice, mild flavor. Sure, you can use any white vinegar, but ACV is the way to go here. Look for raw apple cider vinegar; it will be on a room temp shelf when you buy it, refrigerate it after opening to preserve the enzymes.

Star #4: Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Good ‘ol EVOO. It’s full of healthy fat and works wonderful in this dressing. Again, buy one that you like the flavor of; I’ve been using Thrive Market’s EVOO for the last few months and love it. (And apparently I’m obsessed with Thrive Market.) It has a mild flavor, great price and is certified to actually be extra virgin olive oil. Did you know that a LOT of imported EVOO is cut with lesser oils? It’s a huge problem in the food industry right now. A lot of the olive oil you think you’re buying isn’t really olive oil (YIKES). Best to go with one from a company you trust.

And that’s it! Equal parts of those four ingredients plus a dash of sea salt and black pepper to taste will give you the most delicious and healthy honey mustard dressing that you’ve ever had.

BTW: Thrive Market is a direct-to-consumer online grocer and they do not pay me for mentioning them, but I love them so much that I am a partner. You can use my link and save an additional 15% and get free shipping with a minimum amount. Since they’ve cut out the middleman, you will definitely save some cash.

Healthy Honey Mustard Dressing Recipe

Prep time: less than 5 minutes
Total time: less than 5 minutes
Yields 1 cup, can easily be halved, doubled or tripled

Ingredients:

  • 1/4 cup raw honey
  • 1/4 cup dijon mustard (I prefer Sir Kensington’s)
  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 pinch fine sea salt
  • a few turns of freshly cracked black pepper

Method: Whisk all ingredients together. Alternatively, shake all ingredients together in a mason jar until emulsified. Store in an airtight glass container in the refrigerator up to 5 days.

Here’s a shot of my favorite Honey Mustard Chicken Salad

I used: mixed greens (give them a chop), purple carrots (the taste the same as orange), grape tomatoes, toasted pumpkin seeds (dry toast them yourself in a skillet), avocado, microgreens, and Applegate gluten-free baked chicken tenders. I mostly use roasted chicken, but keep these Applegate ones in the freezer in case I’m in a pinch–they’re good and use good ingredients. If you love to order a Honey Mustard Chicken salad at a restaurant, you’ll love this!

 

I’ve had this salad every day for the last week 😬Because homemade honey mustard is so easy and it’s SO good. 😍 And good for you if you make it right.
