If you like vinaigrette on your salads, and if you like honey-mustard flavor, then you’ll have to try this vinaigrette! It’s very quick and easy to make, and really good! This Honey Mustard Vinaigrette recipe has a great lightly-sweet and tangy taste and makes about 1 cup of vinaigrette, so if you need more you’ll want to double the recipe. I used a slightly sweet, grainy mustard in my vinaigrette, and I really like the way it turned out!
This vinaigrette has a thin oily layer on top, but otherwise doesn’t separate much. You need to shake or stir it well before serving. I think the best time to make this vinaigrette is right before you serve your salad, with the ingredients all freshly whisked together!
If you have any vinaigrette left over, you can refrigerate it in a container with a tight-fitting lid—when I buy fancier salad dressings, I save the glass bottles—they’re perfect for keeping your own homemade dressings in! Then just give it a good shake when you’re ready to use the vinaigrette again!
