A small mason jar with honey mustard salad dressing sits atop a small wooden cutting board. The dressing is a light yellow color. A wooden butter knife, a small bowl with golden-colored honey are sitting next to the jar. A decorative tea towel with bumble bees and honey combs shapes is also draped over the cutting board handle.

My family’s love for the flavors of a sweet and tangy honey mustard sauce is well-documented in older posts on this little food blog. I’ve previously shared here about four recipes that feature some version of a honey mustard sauce as a seasoning base, salad dressing or dipping sauce. Seeing as how we adore the stuff, I will continue to share more ways to love it!

I still make all of the previously published recipes at home from time to time, especially these Crispy Honey Mustard Chicken Tenders. They are a tried and true, family favorite main dish.

I seriously make this Creamy Honey Mustard Salad Dressing all of the time as it’s Evan’s favorite salad dressing evarrrr. He requests it by name, and requests for homemade goodies in any category always makes me feel happy.

I had to giggle at myself when I realized that I’ve never shared my best-loved recipe for this classic salad dressing on the blog before now.

In fact, I had to check my recipe index twice, because I just really couldn’t believe I hadn’t posted it!

Sometimes it feels like the obvious just escapes me when it comes to sharing recipes lately. I guess things we do or make very often in everyday life don’t seem like the most exciting tidbits of information to share. However, as of today this recipe index is updated to include this gem of a tasty, old school salad dressing recipe for anyone who wants to make it!

Honestly, it’s about time I finally got this done. I feel accomplished for the day now, y’all. πŸ˜†

This version of a zesty honey mustard salad dressing is a staple for us and even though it’s very simple, it’s very good stuff. We hope you thinks it’s a keeper too.

Happy eating, my friends! πŸ₯—πŸ§‘

  1. Marcelle – this reminds me of my favorite dressing from a restaurant near where I went to college. I can’t wait to make it – I need to up my salad dressing game!

    • I think it really is a restaurant quality salad dressing, it tastes just like a honey mustard dressing they serve at a diner I used to frequent in my college days. I hope y’all enjoy it, David! Thank you 🧑

  2. Hi Marcelle, It’s good to visit your blog again! Yes, I am back. I needed to step back for awhile and then I felt like my blog needed to be completely redone and rebranded. I smiled when I saw you had visited my blog.

    Honey mustard dressing, and freshly prepared is the bomb. So good. Paired up with a hearty salad or crispy chicken tenders is a delicious way to enjoy.

Sometimes I have to stop posting for a while too just to get into a better head space to write lol I love blogging, but it can feel overwhelming sometimes, idk why! So happy you are back in the blogosphere with us!! πŸ’™πŸ’™
