I met the honey muster dressing when I started to work in advertising back in the late nighties, the agency I worked at was in an office building with a Bagel and Salads mint the ground label, my best friend and I have lunch there frequently and she introduced me to this dressing.

Honey its an excellent sweetener, even if it has a similar caloric content that refined sugar, it doesn’t have any refining process which allows it to keep antibiotics and nutrients, thats why that sometimes people have honey and lemons for cold. If we combine this with a nice mustard, it can be dijon or plane yellow mustard from any grocery store, you will get an excellent mix of flavor.

INGREDIENTS

4 Tbsp Honey

4 Tbsp Yellow Mustrad

1/2 cup Olive Oil

Sea Salt

Slowly incorporate the olive oil to make and steady illusion, this means mixing it until all the ingredients come together without separating.

Mayonnaise its an emulsion that contains a high content of fat, however, when home made with extra virgin olive oil you get the benefits of a unrefined cold pressed oil which is healthier for you and great for a reduced calories diet, in difference with the retail version which is usually done with vegetable oil (the olive available for that company or a mix of many different oils) and another ingredients that allows it to keep shelf stability for six months without spoiling.

You don’t have to feel intimidated by this recipe, its super easy to make and delicious.
