View Full Version : Honey Mustard Dressing
09-15-2010, 03:50 PM
I know there's nothing new about this, but I bought a salad dressing bottle/mixer at Target the other day. It's a gadget that has a blade attached that spins when it's pumped... Anyway, being the gadget lover that I am... I had to have it.
On the bottle is a recipe for HMD: 1/3 cup each oil and honey. 3 T each mustard and lemon juice. I used some pulverized mustard seed for the mustard and added some minced red onion (FINE) and a few shakes of a no salt organic spice mix. YUM.
It was what I needed yesterday, what more can I say. Ate it on a mixed green salad with tomato and avocado.
What? A kitchen gadget I don't have....Hmmm....?
How do you like your new toy?
I went to the bulk Frontier spice rack to get some organic yellow mustard seed (for dressing too) and the fella was there filling the jars. He asked if I'd ever tried the brown mustard seeds and said they've got some heat! No - never tried them, never even heard of them. So I bought some and look forward to trying them next time I make that dressing. *Ü*

Oh! Sounds like a fun gadget! And the dressing... YUM!
I went to a meeting today at Bastyr University and had lunch in their vegetarian cafeteria. I chose the Honey mustard dressing as it looked the most like a raw dressing. It was loaded with chia seeds.

I love HMD..so glad you have a good recipe..I have been trying to make it but it is lacking something..maybe the red onion will help.. Your gadget sounds great, although, since my kids quit using their sippy cups I have started using them as dressing shakers..they won't leak and they are small enough for a small amount of dressing and they are already in my cupboard..:)

I used the recipe you posted as a jumping off point and added chia seeds:
1/3 cup olive oil
1/3 cup honey
1/3 cup apple cider vinegar
1/3 cup water
1/3 cup chia seeds
3 T. stone ground prepared mustard (organic with no additives)
3 T. lemon juice
pinch pink crystal salt
Shake it together every few minutes until the chia seeds start to get. Ready to use in about 30 minutes. After storing in the fridge for a day it is extra thick and creamy.

Did you add the chai for protein?? Mine is thick (although I see you also added water and vinegar)... HMMMM. Might have to try it that way too.
And as for my GADGET??? LOVE IT.

I added chia seeds as a thickener so I could use less olive oil. Protein and nutrients are an added bonus.
I looked online to see if I could find your gadget. Is it the battery powered "Bonjour Salad Chef" sold at Target for $19.99?
