How to make Honey Dijon Dressing
Whisk ingredients. Place all the ingredients in a bowl and whisk together. Whisking will allow you to keep the mustard seeds whole which I prefer. If you want a smooth creamy dressing, go ahead and blend until smooth.
Store in jar or container. Once your dressing has reached the consistency you are looking for and is done, store it in a mason jar or any sealed container in the fridge for up to 6 weeks.
Honey Mustard Dressing Recipe tips, tricks, and variations
Mustard: Don’t be afraid to use different mustard or mustards’ if you want to change it up. With this recipe, you can use any mustard you like to make honey mustard! However, I would like to point out, if you use classic ballpark mustard you will get that bright yellow honey mustard that kids tend to love!
Honey: Personally, I like to use Local Orange Blossom honey because it has a deep caramelized flavor. However, you can use any honey you have on hand and it will work just fine.
Texture: As I mentioned previously, I love whole mustard seeds and that’s why I whisk the ingredients together. But, if you want or prefer a smooth honey dijon you can use a blender or food processor to get a smoother texture.
