How to make mustard salad dressing at home

Mustard salad dressing

Mustard sauce for salads has been known for a very long time. Many variations have been invented with it, liquid, thick and even granular, but more on that later. It’s great as a salad dressing for fresh vegetables, but this sauce is also great with lean meat.

Honey mustard

This sweetish-mustard salad sauce will appeal to lovers of salads with a spicy taste. Also based on honey-mustard sauce, there are recipes for marinades for meat, poultry and even various kinds of pickles. So, let’s start making the sauce with honey and mustard.

We will need:

  • Liquid honey – 2 tbsp. l.
  • Homemade mustard – 1 tbsp. l.
  • Vegetable oil (odorless) – 2 tbsp. l.
  • Balsamic white vinegar – 1 tsp
  • Garlic – 1 clove.
  • Salt to taste

It’s better to use EXTRA VIRGIN olive oil, but feel free to swap balsamic vinegar for lemon juice!


  1. Mix honey with vinegar and oil, this will make it more liquid.
  2. Now it’s easier to stir mustard into it, which is what we do.
  3. Grind the garlic on a fine grater or pass it through a garlic press.
  4. Mix everything well and add salt to your taste.
  5. Salad dressing with honey mustard and butter is ready!

As you can see, making mustard-honey sauce is as easy as shelling pears. So, feel free to prepare mustard sauce not only for salad, it is perfect for jellied meat or jellied fish.

But this dressing is considered especially good for salad with arugula and shrimp or with tuna and tomatoes. Yes, just serve it with boiled breast, tongue or boiled pork.

With grainy mustard

Salad dressing with Dijon mustard will give a more piquant taste. And the mustard seeds burst interestingly when you taste the salad.


  • Liquid honey – 1 tbsp. l.
  • Dijon mustard – 1 tbsp. l.
  • EXTRA VIRGIN olive oil – 100 ml.
  • Juice of half a lime
  • Salt, pepper to taste

How to do:

  1. Mix mustard, honey and lime juice.
  2. Continuing to whisk, pour in the oil in a thin stream until the sauce thickens.
  3. Salt, pepper and the French mustard dressing is ready!

It’s basically a salad dressing with mustard and honey, like the recipe above. But it is with grainy mustard that the sauce acquires its “trick”.
