My love affair with honey mustard dressing began in college. I was on a “healthy” kick and instead of sandwiches I’d get turkey + veggie wraps with honey mustard dressing from the cafeteria. I don’t think I had ever had honey mustard before and I was obsessed.
Side note: remember when we thought those colorful wraps were soooo healthy? I have a sort of weird nostalgia for those days before superfoods and wellness really got popular.
Fast forward over a decade later, honey mustard still holds a place in my heart, although I prefer to make my own as most store bought dressings are filled with sugar and weird ingredients that my gut does not love.
I whipped up this probiotic rich dressing to go on a yummy brunch salad I brought to a baby shower a few weeks back and it turns out it’s delicious on EVERYTHING! If you can’t find kefir feel free to swap it for plain Greek yogurt.
Probiotic Honey Mustard Dressing
1 cup plain kefir (I used this dairy free coconut kefir, but you can also swap Greek yogurt or unsweetened coconut yogurt)
1/4 cup raw honey
1/4 cup Dijon mustard
1 tsp raw apple cider vingear
Salt and fresh ground pepper to taste
Add all ingredients to your blender and blend on high until smooth. Add salt and pepper to taste. You can also play with the amount of honey and mustard to customize this dressing to your specific taste buds!
Use this dressing on salads (the one I made for the baby shower had fruit and walnuts and was a huge brunch hit!), as dipping sauce for veggies or drizzle atop roasted salmon or chicken to amp up the flavor.
It truly is so versatile!
