Dennis' Honey-Mustard Salad Dressing

Recipe by  

"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!

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

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!

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.

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!

Very good! I used lemon zest as that's what I had on hand.
