This Dijon mustard vinaigrette recipe is one of the simplest variations on the basic vinaigrette formula and a delicious salad dressing in its own right. Ina Garten Creamy Honey Mustard Vinaigrette, our new favorite salad dressing.
This honey mustard vinaigrette recipe is a big-time family favorite for us. Predictable with vinegar, and bright Dijon mustard becomes sweet and tangy with the addition of honey.
The creamy factor is enhanced with an egg and the end result is a luscious, beautifully colored homemade vinaigrette that becomes irresistible.
Simple ingredients, simple in procedure, let’s take a look.
On Making Homemade Dressing
I hardly ever buy bottled dressings anymore. Years ago, I discovered that one can lead a perfectly normal life without a bottle of Wishbone in the refrigerator.
Homemade dressings are so easy, so delicious and so fresh and most will keep in the fridge for about a week and sometimes longer.
One of my favorites is this Dijon Mustard vinaigrette that I watched Ina make one day. We love this dressing. Her recipe states that if you’re afraid of the raw egg, just omit.
I guess I’m not afraid of the raw egg. I always use very fresh organic eggs, purchased at Whole Foods. The vinegar tempers the egg as you whisk it all together. I just don’t think the recipe would be as creamy good without it.
Ina recipes are so reliable, you have to try Ina’s Gruyere, Arugula, Tomato and Onion Sliders. This is an OMG for sure.
