If you are looking for the secret to an amazing salad, my advice is to make your own dressing! I am a big fan of homemade dressing whether dinner is just for the four of us or a big group. I think a spectacular salad sets the stage for a memorable meal!

Hanging just inside my pantry, is my go-to reference sheet of more than 20 dressing recipes. The recipes call for a variety of vinegars, sweeteners and oils that I regularly stock at home to make it easy to assemble them in a matter of minutes.

This recipe for Honey Mustard Vinaigrette is one of my favorites. I use it often with combinations of salad greens, fruits and nuts. Since the dressing has a pleasant tanginess, it is an ideal match for sweet dried or fresh fruits like strawberries, apples and raspberries.

I start by plating my greens and salad toppings on a large platter. Next, I combine the dressing ingredients in a canning jar and shake to combine. When I entertain a crowd, I make this dressing an hour or two ahead and store on the counter in the jar until just before serving. I give it good shake before drizzling it on the salad at serving time.

I hope you will try this dressing recipe featuring Eckert’s Pure Honey next time you need a spectacular salad around your dinner table!
