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

I hope you love this homemade vinaigrette dressing and find a variety of uses for it in the kitchen! Although, if you need ideas I have included some great recipes to try the dressing out in.
- 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.

Dressing Storage Instructions
This honey mustard vinaigrette dressing can be stored in an airtight container in the fridge for up to two weeks. When ready to use the dressing make sure to give it a good shake/stir to incorporate the ingredients together. This is why I love using a mason jar for this homemade dressing, because it can be made then stored all in the same container.
The vast majority of store-bought salad dressing are not that great for you. They are loaded with unnecessary fats, sugars a lot of preservatives. This is why I prefer to make my own from scratch because I can better control what goes in. Homemade dressing are more often a better for you alternative.
There is a difference in color with regular mustard being bright yellow and Dijon being more pale. Also, the texture of Dijon is creamier than regular yellow mustard. The taste of each is also different with Dijon being spicier.
I love using this homemade vinaigrette dressing for a variety of different recipes. I find that the best way to use this dressing is in salads, wraps, with veggies or as a marinade for meats (it works bomb with chicken and pork). These are just a few awesome recipes to try that use or can be used with this honey mustard vinaigrette.
