Last week was homemade mayo. This week honey mustard dressing or sauce. This honey mustard dressing only has three ingredients, mayo, mustard, and honey. It does not have preservatives or artificial colorings found in commercial dressings.
As long as records have been kept, honey was on the scene. It is antibacterial and antifungal, good for colds, coughs, and wound care. Use it to sweeten tea, oatmeal, baked goods or just eat it by the spoonful for a treat and a burst of energy. I purchase raw unfiltered honey whenever possible because the natural pollens, enzymes, vitamins and minerals are intact that make it a healthy sweetener. Many other attributes sing honey’s praise. Explore them.
Yellow mustard is a condiment made from ground mustard seed, turmeric, vinegar, and salt. The turmeric gives it the yellow color. Health wise, mustard is multitalented due to the benefits of its ingredients. Its attributes, just to name a few are relief from pain, skin conditions, stomach issues and detoxification. Although the use of mustard seed dates to thousands of years ago, yellow mustard made its debut at the 1904 World’s Fair as a condiment for hot dogs.
This honey mustard is easy, quick to prepare and will add a zing to salads and a kick to chicken fingers. Double the recipe if you need more. If the flavor of the mayo is too strong, add more mustard and/or honey. If it is too sweet, reduce the honey. Add other ingredients as you desire. You cater it to your own specific taste. Because this has no preservatives, make only as much as can be used within two weeks.
