Spicy Honey Mustard Dressing

When Kevin and I first cleaned up our diets, we pretty much had to clear every bottle of salad dressing out of our fridge. Most store bought salad dressings are full of unhealthy fats and artificial flavorings.

                                    

For a while, we just drizzled olive oil and vinegar on our salads, but we finally got bored with that and have started making our own dressings. Usually just some random mix of mustard, oil, vinegar, herbs and spices. You really can't go wrong, but this honey mustard dressing is one that we just keep coming back to. 

Slightly sweet, tangy and just a little bit spicy, this dressing has very few ingredients, but lots of flavor! You can easily adjust the measurements to make more or less dressing, too.

Do you have a favorite "clean" dressing recipe?
