Ingredients for honey mustard dressing

For almost every dressing, you use 1 part vinegar (or, for example, lemon juice) and 3 parts oil. Very often a so-called emulsifier is added to dressing, so that the oil and liquid bind. That can be an egg yolk, as used in mayonnaise, but mustard is also perfectly suitable as an emulsifier.

Since we find the ratio 1:3 quite acidic, adding a spoonful of honey is the way to create more balance. With that you immediately have almost all the ingredients for the famous combination of honey and mustard.

You can also use lemon juice, apple cider vinegar or natural vinegar instead of red wine vinegar.
