Honey Mustard—a Winning combo

So, we’re talking about salad dressings this week and I have to include this recipe first because it’s hubby’s favorite and maybe the kind we use the most around here. Being a health-conscious wife and mom, I feel obligated to do what it takes to get the veggies into the mouths of my boys. And if that means Honey Mustard dressing—so be it!

This couldn’t be easier to make and there are no fancy ingredients. It’s all stuff you probably already have on hand.  Here’s what we do to make a fresh, healthy salad that has all “hubby safe” foods in it:

Wash and spin the greens.
Mix up the dressing.
Toast some walnuts.
Grab a handful of raisins.
Grate a carrot.

Toss them all together in a nice big salad bowl. I know, very scientific.

This also makes a great dip!

1/2 cup mayonnaise
2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
2 tablespoon honey
1 tablespoon lemon juice
Freshly ground salt and pepper
1 tsp. chopped fresh thyme

1. Whisk it all together, store covered in the refrigerator.
