Any recipes floating around out there for Honey mustard dressing? It is my favorite and I want to make it and take it everywhere with me :)

There's one in Alyssa's book- just mix yellow mustard powder and honey. I made it though and was disappointed because it didn't taste like honey mustard at all. Ah well, maybe I didn't use enough mustard powder?
I did a search for you and didn't find a posted recipe, however there was mention that Alissa has one in her book if you have it.
Sorry I can't do better for you,
Maybe this will help as far as why it tastes different: http://www.rawfoodtalk.com/forum/showthread.php?p=67240&highlight=honey+mustard+dressing#post67240

I loved Alissa's recipe as it's also my favorite. Raw in Ten has one also.

Did anyone ever come up with something that tastes like the commercial variety, by any chance? Just curious.

1/4 c mustard powder
1/4 c apple cider vinegar
Put these in a blender until powder is dissolved.
3/4 c honey
1/2 tsp sea salt
3 T coconut cream or oil
juice of 1/2 lemon
a bit of pepper if desired
Blend until emulsified. Put in fridge and let set 2 hours. You'll have super-yummy, creamy honey mustard dressing.
This is the result of my own experiment, and I did it with hot mustard powder because it's all I had. But it came out really well. You could add some water if it's too strong.
Let me know what you think!

Well, I finally came up with something and I'm pretty happy about it. Here is my version:
3 T date paste
4 T lemon juice
4 T olive oil
1 t turmeric
¼-½ t mustard, ground
½ t dulse and/or kelp in lieu of salt
1. Mix all the ingredients together in a blender.
2. Allow to sit for a few minutes before eating.
Nothing fancy but it fulfills requirements of no salt and no vinegar while getting plenty of iodine through the dulse while also not having too much mustard, since years ago I heard that it isn't the best thing for us. That's why I use more turmeric than mustard. Also, no "artificial" sweeteners, as I try to avoid agave nectar and use that only when nothing else works, like in tea. Date paste made just by soaking dates then blending. I keep in a jar in fridge.
I've had this several times and even gave my brother some salad with this dressing and he actually loved it. So it's one possibility for a honey-mustard dressing.
I will try Alissa's next.
Also, I'd like to experiment with mustard seeds instead of ground mustard next to get one of those grainy mustard dressings. And after that, not dressing but along the mustard lines, would like to try to make dijon mustard.
Cheers and thanks. :)

The one in Alissa's book is delicious and more ingredients than just honey and mustard. I love it!

Yes, I didn't have Alissa's book when I first posted this. Now I do! I took a look at her recipe and it looks really great. I'm going to try it out as soon as I buy some more mustard seeds as the pantry only yields a tbl or 2. :)
