Dennis' Honey-Mustard Salad Dressing

Dennis' Honey-Mustard Salad Dressing


"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!


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.

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!
