Honey mustard vinaigrette

I ran across the most amazing honey mustard vinaigrette recipe last Friday. I'd been looking for a honey mustard salad dressing recipe for a few weeks, and this one far exceeded anything I'd hoped to make. Not only is it delicious with a savory fragrance, it is unbelievably quick and easy to make.

Here's what you'll need:

1/2 cup olive oil
1/4 cup white wine vinegar
1 clove of garlic (pressed)
1 tablespoon dijon mustard
2 tablespoons honey
salt and pepper to taste

I mixed all ingredients in my gently-used-recently-purchased-at-a-bargain KitchenAid mixer because I love it dearly and look for any excuse to use it. I have even discovered I can generate enough air with the wisk attachment to dry my hair!

Or you can simply mix all ingredients together and shake well.

Add more honey for a sweeter vinaigrette or more mustard for a tangier vinaigrette.

Saturday night, we enjoyed our new find on a tossed salad with tomato, cheese, cucumber, zuchinni, and toasted almonds. Sunday night, we equally loved it with spinach, grapes, feta, and pecans.

Almost forgot! Just kidding about the hair drying comment!
