It is definitely not a secret by now that I am a massive fan of homemade dressings and spices.

Ingredient Notes

  • Olive Oil: I like to use plain regular olive oil and not extra virgin olive oil. Extra virgin olive oil has a bolder flavor and will come trough more, but if that is all you have it will still work fine.
  • Honey: If the dressing isn't sweet enough for you with just honey, you can use a small about of white sugar in addition. I add a tiny pinch at a time and taste as I go if I want to Honey Dijon Dressing to be on the sweeter side.

    Simple & tasty. I substituted lemon juice for 1 Tbsp of the apple cider vinegar for a brighter taste. Excellent on a chopped salad with garbanzos.

    Love this dressing! It's so good, I could almost drink it!
    As another said, I was at first concerned about salt/pepper measurement, but I made it as is and again, loved it. Thank you.

    I made this recipe and it tasted great! However I am wondering if the amount of salt and pepper was transposed. The recipe calls for " 1/4 tsp of salt and 1 tsp of pepper." I thought that 1 tsp of pepper would be way too much pepper so I used 1/4 tsp pepper and about 1/2 tsp salt.
    Will definitely make again.
