dressing with a zip!

Next time you walk down the condiment isle of your local grocery store check out the ingredients on the back of some of the salad dressings.  No doubt there will be chemicals, and/or preservatives.  Even organic salad dressing can be loaded with refined sugars and sodium, plus super expensive!  

So, why not make your own, out of healthy, whole ingredients... sometimes it is the details that make all the difference!  Why waste a delicious and healthy salad with an unhealthy dressing?  

AAHHHHH!  May it never be!

Here is my current favorite dressing.  And, is it ever packed with a tangy zip!  Here is a recipe so easy that it can be made quicker than trying to open the safety seal on store-bought dressings!  

Honey-Mustard Vinagrete

What you are going to need:

1/4 C spicy-brown mustard
1/4 C apple cider vinegar (or lemon juice if you do not want it quite so "tangy")
2T olive oil
2T sesame oil
2T honey (or more if you want it a little sweeter)
1T water
1t ground ginger, or 1/2t shredded raw ginger
1/2t pink Himalayan salt
1 tsp sesame seeds (optional)

You may mix it in a bowl, but I put it in a jam jar, shake it up, until all the honey has been incorporated,  and it is ready to go and already in a storage container!  Easy Peasy!  I will last about a week or so in the refrigerator, but I doubt it will last that long!
