My Grandma’s Mustard Vinaigrette Dressing is as sweet as you want or need it to be! Perfect for everything from cooking chicken and salmon to salad!
My grandparents always made their own salad dressing and this was one of my favorites! This recipe for My Grandma’s Mustard Vinaigrette Dressing is not sweet on its own, for that you must add a tablespoon or two of honey!
My grandfather always used to chop all of the vegetables that she put out for the salad while my grandmother made lunch or dinner. They were a great team!
My grandmother felt that the vegetables were sweet enough all by themselves so she rarely used honey. She was so right! The honey is unnecessary. But with or without honey this dressing recipe satisfies every time!
She used this dressing to make everything from salad to chicken! Everything always tasted great. I don’t think she was capable of making a bad meal!
She was, and still is, such an inspiration! She had the ability to turn nothing into something. I learned from her to look in my fridge and see all of the possibilities!
Like all of her creations, this recipe for My Grandma’s Mustard Vinaigrette Dressing is a definite keeper! For so many reasons!
This salad dressing is perfect for the fast approaching summer months! Ken refers to summer as salad weather! He loves his garden, and growing all kinds of vegetables! The difference in the taste of home grown vegetables is worth the effort!
Luckily, these days, Ken has some extra time! Which means I end up with lots of veggies! We always have some of this dressing in our fridge!
