Honey Mustard Vinaigrette, so easy to make last minute!

Now is the time to get your salad dressing skills up to date! With spring flowers and gardens starting everywhere, salads will be on the table more often. This Honey Mustard Vinaigrette is one you will enjoy time and time again...



A salad is a great way to get a portion of the suggested five servings of vegetables each day. And a fresh salad with Honey Mustard Vinaigrette is certainly a delicious way to get some of those vegetables!  When making a salad, feel free to use tender green tops from beets, kale as well as other assorted vegetables for an impromptu salad. And the best part of any salad? The dressing of course!

This Honey Mustard Vinaigrette is very easy to make, calls for basic pantry ingredients, and is perfectly delicious! One of the simplest ways to enjoy Honey Mustard Vinaigrette is to drizzle it over a platter of sliced tomatoes! Please note, our recipe for Honey Mustard Vinaigrette is not as sweet as a commercially prepared dressing, so if you prefer that level of sweetness, we have an easy fix, just add a bit more honey.


I was surprised at how much I like this salad dressing. I never purchased or cared for commercially prepared Honey Mustard Salad Dressings in the past. It always seemed too heavy and sweet. When I came across this recipe, honestly I was a bit reluctant to try it. 

But Honey Mustard Vinaigrette has become a favorite around here, proof that being open to new ideas is a pretty good idea! And one last thought, don’t leave out the soy sauce, it is the easiest way to add “salt” to homemade salad dressing!


Ingredients needed for this recipe:
  • vegetable oil
  • red wine vinegar
  • soy sauce
  • honey
  • yellow ballpark mustard
  • Dijon mustard
You will also need the following:
  • measuring cups
  • measuring spoons
  • storage container with a tight-fitting lid
Now we are ready to begin!

1 T Dijon mustard



Place the oil, red wine vinegar, soy sauce, honey, and the two kinds of mustard in the storage container, secure the lid tightly, and shake to combine. Shake well before dressing your salad. Refrigerate leftovers.

Storage options for Honey Mustard Vinaigrette. Store in the refrigerator for up to seven days. I do not recommend freezing the vinaigrette.

  1. I wonder how changing the oil to olive or canola would change the taste? And changing the vinegar would also alter the taste. I've never had avocado oil, but Jimmy loves honey mustard dressing, so I can fiddle with your recipe to see which one works best for us. Thanks, Melynda!

    1. Nickie, it should be just fine. While the flavor is not overpowering, the honey mustard combination is assertive enough to go with your oil of choice. Thanks for stopping by, I appreciate it!

  4. We don't often make our own dressings. I am not sure why as it isn't really that hard to do!
