Honey Mustard Salad Dressing

My husband loves honey mustard salad dressing, but he also loves my homemade Vidalia Onion Vinaigrette, so I began to wonder how I could recreate a good honey mustard dressing at home. It ended up not being so hard to do ... in fact it was really very easy. Since he's not a huge salad fan, I was happy he finally found one he liked.

The sweet and tangy comes together in a delicious dressing you can use in a multitude of ways ... over a salad of mixed greens, with pecan crusted chicken, or as a finishing/basting sauce on grilled meats. It's also excellent brushed on a baked ham, PLUS it's so simple to make, literally takes minutes. What could be better than that?

¼ cup raw local honey (I use honey from Bell Honey Company )
3 tbls. Dijon mustard
1/2 tsp. course-ground black pepper
1/2 tsp. dried minced onion
¼ cup apple cider vinegar
½ cup extra virgin olive oil

In a small bowl, whisk together honey, Dijon mustard, course-ground black pepper,  minced onion and apple cider vinegar until well blended.

Whisk in olive oil and pour dressing into a bottle or container with a lid.

Store dressing the your refrigerator.
