This Vegan Honey Mustard is perfect for dressing salads or for dipping! Its creamy, simple to make and incredibly flavorful.
In the summertime, I love making big fresh salads. Especially for packed work lunches. I can make a few at a time, top them with whatever leftovers I have in the fridge and put a dressing on them. And lately, this Vegan Honey Mustard Dressing has been my go-to.
This Honey Mustard Dressing only requires FOUR ingredients that you will likely have on hand in your pantry or refrigerator already!
To make this honey mustrd vegan, here is only one little change that we need to make: the honey
Honey is an animal product, so there is no actual honey in this dressing. Instead, I used my Vegan Hot Honey to make this recipe. BUT you can substitute regular old agave here in lieu of making Vegan Hot Honey.
Vegan Hot Honey or Agave: This ingredient is the star of the show. It adds sweetness and that honey-like flavor. And plain old agave works perfectly if you don’t want to commit to making Vegan Hot Honey!
Dijon Mustard: Dijon flavors this dressing, and also keeps the mixture emulsified. Any brand will work but Ingelhoffer dijon is my personal fave!
White Wine Vinegar: White wine vinegar adds a little tang to this Vegan Honey Mustard Dressing. I’m partial to white wine vinegar for this recipe because dijon mustard is made with white wine vinegar. So the flavor complements rather than overpowers. But champagne vinegar or even apple cider vinegar will also work.
Extra Virgin Olive Oil: Make sure you’re using the good stuff! This add flavor and richness. And when the oil emulsifies with the dijon and vinegar, the dressing will thicken and become creamy.
How to Make Vegan Honey Mustard Dressing
Salad dressing SO simple to make. This Vegan Honey Mustard Dressing can either be made in a bowl with a whisk or in a jar that has a tight fitting lid so it can be shaken up.
Simply combine all ingredients except for olive oil in a bowl and whisk together. Then, slowly and while whisking constantly, drizzle the olive oil in. The dijon mustard will help to emulsify the oil making the mixture thicken up and become creamy.
I like to use this Vegan Honey Mustard Dressing asa salad dressing OR as a dipping sauce. This stuff makes a delicious dip for vegan chicken tenders!
