Light Honey Mustard Salad Dressing is made from scratch and comes together in minutes. This dressing is tangy, sweet, and full of flavor.
This light honey mustard salad dressing is a new staple in my refrigerator. You'll love that it's lower in calories than the average store bought dressing, but tastes just as good - if not better!
The best part is that you only need a few ingredients, which you may already have on hand in your pantry. Plus, your dressing can be shaken up in a mason jar, leaving no kitchen cleanup afterward!
This dressing is perfect for your next side salad with dinner, or big lunch salad filled with chicken and veggies.
What size jar do I need?
For this recipe, you'll need an 8 ounce mason jar. Simply add your ingredients to the mason jar, seal, and shake.
Once your mixture looks fully combined, it's ready to go. Store in the refrigerator for up to a month.
If you don't have a mason jar on hand, feel free to whisk your ingredients in a bowl instead, storing your finished dressing in any sealable container.
Can I add oil?
A traditional salad dressing will include some form of oil, like olive oil or mayonnaise for a traditional honey mustard. In this dressing recipe, we've lightened things up and excluded the oil entirely.
However, you're welcome to add a few tablespoons of your preferred fat to this dressing to suit your tastes.
