Homemade Honey Mustard Salad Dressing Recipe


My first meeting with honey mustard dressing was at Scandia Bakery where I spent most of my teenage years. I sold doughnuts while listening to Scandinavian music by day and vacuumed floors while listening to Air Supply by night. We had a lunch counter which was very popular and one of the items I was brave enough to try was the spinach salad. It was a right of passage… a step towards growing up. Until then, I had thought I was a big deal for evolving from French dressing to ranch.


Now, here I was. All grown up and eating spinach salad with dreamy honey mustard dressing. Of course, we all know you are truly grown up when you can enjoy blue cheese dressing and not lie about it, but I’ll save that for another day.


  • 1 1/2 cups regular mayonnaise
  • 1 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup dijon mustard
  • Fresh-squeezed lemon juice to taste (couple tablespoons)
  • Dash of sea salt
  • Fresh ground pepper

Place all ingredients in a bowl and whisk until well-combined. Taste to make sure everything is to your personal liking. Drizzle upon your favorite salad until we graduate to blue cheese.
