honey lemon dijon dressing

June 2, 2013

I have done a series of homemade dressings and have included a tab above, suzyhomemaker sauces, where you can find all of them listed with links.

This was a dressing I threw together at the last minute. it took me literally 2 minutes. If that doesn't convince you to make homemade dressings maybe this will...the ingredients of a store-bought version.

Ingredients: high fructose corn syrup, water, cider vinegar, dijon mustard (black mustard seeds, vinegar, white wine, salt, spices), honey, potato starch, cellulose gel, cellulose gum, mustard flour, salt, mustard (cider vinegar, mustard, water, salt, propylene glycol, alginate, oil of pepper), lemon juice concentrate, brown mustard seed, potassium sorbate as a preservative, xanthan gum, granulated onion, caramel color, granulated garlic.

My version


scant 1/2 cup avocado oil

1/4 cup lemon juice
2 Tbsp rice vinegar
1 tsp dijon
1 tsp  honey

Just whisk all the ingredients together.

* NOTE: I totally forgot I had already done a lemon dijon dressing a few months ago. They are very similar, but again I think it just reiterates how easy it is to make your own and you don't even have to worry if you don't have all the ingredients on hand. Just improvise!
