More than Salads

Of course, if you want to make a salad and add this dressing, you really MUST try these easy Parmesan Crisps to go on top!

PREP-AHEAD STEPS FOR HONEY MUSTARD SALAD DRESSING

Finely dice 1 Tbls shallot.


In a small bowl, add the Dijon, Oil, Vinegar, Honey, Shallot, Salt, Pepper. Whisk together with a fork or small whisk until completely blended together.


Taste on a piece of lettuce for seasoning and add salt or pepper as needed. 

Can I use regular onion instead of shallot?

Shallots have a milder flavor than onions do, so if you only have a regular yellow or red onion or similar, here’s what to do.  First, finely chop and use HALF of what the recipe calls for.  I mean, really finely chop so that you do not get a large chunk of onion in any bites.  Then soak the chopped onion in some cold water for an hour before adding it to the dressing.  Of course, if you are a big onion lover, you can add more. 

How long will this dressing last in the refrigerator?

If you store this dressing in the refrigerator in a sealed container, it should last between 1-2 weeks.  

What other herbs would be good in this dressing?

You could add fresh or dried basil, oregano, thyme, or tarragon.  You can also add spices, such as chili powder, cumin, paprika, or garlic powder!

ENJOY!  😍 Carrie
