Honey Mustard Dressing Recipe

Here you will find a tasty Honey Mustard Dressing Recipe. But if you fancy a change or something a bit different, why not also take a look at a few alternatives, some containing honey, some only mustard, and some containing neither!

Bees are having a hard time. Please see my notes on the importance of buying honey ethically.

Honey Mustard Dressing Recipe 1

1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 tablespoon of clear honey1 level tablespoon caster sugar
1 Tablespoon red wine vinegar or white wine vinegar
3 Tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon finely chopped coriander leaves
Salt and black pepper to taste

Combine the ingredients together – initially without the white wine vinegar, and adding the coriander leaves and salt and pepper last of all.

Try this honey mustard dressing recipe on salads, such as avocado salad, or even a simple green salad.

Honey Mustard Dressing Recipe 2

3 tablespoons of wholegrain mustard
1 tabespoon of honey or maple syrup
1 tabespoon of light mayonnaise
1 tablespoon of olive oil or peanut oil
Pepper to taste

Maple syrup is a great alternative to honey, and adds a hint of caramel to the flavour.

Honey Mustard Dressing Recipe 3

2 tsp red wine vinegar or cider vinegar
2 tbsp olive oil
1 tsp wholegrain mustard
1 tsp honey or maple syrup

Combine the ingredients together and serve.

Honey Lemon And Yoghurt Dressing

One handful of fresh basil (or 2 level tablespoons of dried basil)
150ml / quarter pint natural yoghurt
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 tablespoon of clear honeySalt & freshly ground pepper

Chop basil fine, and add to yoghurt, honey and lemon juice. Season with salt and pepper.

Excellent with new potatoes!

Buying Honey Ethically

Honey bees make honey in order to feed themselves during the winter, when they are unable to forage.

In other words, bees make honey because they need it, and each honey bee will produce only about one twelfth of a teaspoon of honey in its lifetime.

For this reason, I actively encourage people to treasure the honey they use, and to try to purchase honey from an organic supplier or a local beekeeper.

Cheap honey may be cheap because:
- it is contaminated
- it is not pure honey (in some countries, it is even mixed with corn syrup, yet labelled as 'honey')
- in some cases, it is imported from countries with a very low wage and poor work conditions.

Beekeepers engaging in proper practice cannot be expected to compete with the scenarios above.  If this continues, beekeepers will be forced to pack up, or take short cuts (hence making it difficult in the future, if you still want to buy REAL honey - especially local honey).

The product featured right is a premium, RAW honey (organic) yet is a reasonable for what it is.

It's available via Amazon.

This product is ordinary, organic honey, but the price is for a pack of 6 jars.

Again, you can get it from Amazon.

If you are unable to find a sustainable supplier of honey, why not consider one of these delicious dressings as an alternative to the Honey And Mustard Dressing Recipe:
