Creamy Honey Mustard Dressing
Made with a few simple ingredients, this unique Creamy Honey Mustard Dressing is sure to become a staple in your refrigerator. It's great as a dipping sauce for grilled meats, marinade for roasts, or dressing for salads.
I realize that this is just the tip of the iceberg, but it is AMAZING how much laundry a teeny tiny human can create! We've gotten into a groove of doing laundry about every day so that it's less overwhelming, but the amount still amazes me. Another observation: a basket of baby laundry is a much different folding exercise than a basket of adult laundry. Baby clothes are tiny, so there's a LOT more to fold in that basket. Surprisingly, we haven't lost any of her teeny tiny socks! Funny enough, I'm starting to enjoy this simple chore (that I loathed before). I love having this daily exercise to help our family stay clean and organized.
Now, let's talk Creamy Honey Mustard Dressing. I want to pour this dressing over EVERYTHING. It has the perfect balance of sweet, tang, and salt. To be honest, I didn't really like honey mustard before this version. It always tasted too sweet for me and was missing *something.* I'm thrilled to say that I finally put my finger on that something …I needed it to be creamy, too! The creamy texture really balances out the sauce and makes it seem more like a honey mustard hollandaise than a dressing. Instead of a true hollandaise, this Creamy Honey Mustard Dressing is possible thanks to olive oil that is slowly whisked in, forming a very light emulsion.
What to use this on? I love it as a dipping sauce for any grilled protein, as a salad dressing, or as a marinade for a roast (recipe coming tomorrow!).
It will keep well in the refrigerator for several weeks. I hope you enjoy!
