Quick and Easy Honey Mustard Dressing

This is my very favorite salad dressing. I love the simple ingredients in it, that I can whip it up in under two minutes, and that it makes any salad taste incredible. When making a homemade salad dressing I choose this recipe probably 80% of the time. I've made this dressing so many times that I've memorized the recipe--which makes it all the easier to whip up.  The key to not creating too many dirty dishes with this recipe is to use a 1/4 cup measuring cup. Fill it 1.5 times for the oil, once for both the honey and mustard, and fill it half way up for the vinegar. If you measure the oil first followed by the honey the honey will just slip right out of the cup without leaving a sticky mess behind. It's like magic!

Besides the fact that this dressing is simple to make and super tasty, it is also full of good for you ingredients. Apple cider vinegar (always buy the kind with the "mother" in it) boosts gut heath, regulates blood sugar, and wards off seasonal allergies--to name just a few things. Raw honey boosts the immune system, is a natural energy source, and also provides natural allergy relief. Extra virgin olive oil protects heart health, supports brain health, and helps fight cancer. I love using olive oil in my cooking but after doing a lot of research realized it's best to not heat it so using it in salad dressings has become one of my favorite ways to consume it.
