You all know how salad obsessed I am – I love it! I can, and do, eat one a day, even when it is snowing. The weather doesn’t put me off having a delicious salad. A lot of people tell me that they get bored with salads, and I personally think that comes down to not trying different salad dressings.
It can be difficult to know what salad dressings to use, because it is dressings that usually make salads unhealthy. But anything you make at home is ultimately going to be better than anything you can buy. Even just a squeeze of lemon or lime juice on a salad can transform it. But if you are looking for something a bit more exciting, and something to serve to guests at a BBQ, then this is the salad dressings for that. It has the tang from the vinegar, the mustard gives is a creamy consistency and the honey adds a touch of sweetness – the perfect balance I think.
You could even make a creamy version of this by adding some yoghurt.
