Every time I start to write one of these “recipes”, I have this feeling of ridiculousness. Most of the “recipes” require almost no cooking and very few ingredients. However, that was point of creating this category. They truly are simple solutions, little hints or tricks that can make meal planning easier or add a little something extra to a dish.
Today I have a two ingredient recipe for honey mustard. I understand that you can buy honey mustard in any grocery store. In fact, when you peruse the condiment aisle you are likely to have an overwhelming amount of choices. So, why would I bother making my own? There are two benefits to this recipe. One, you can decide what amount of sweetness you would like in your honey mustard. Two, this recipe makes a thinner honey mustard, which works quite nicely as a low calorie and no fat salad dressing.
We have found this recipe to be useful in a multitude of ways. It has been served as a dipping sauce for fresh veggies, homemade chicken tenders, and apple slices. It has been used as a dressing on mixed greens and full salads and as a spread on sandwiches. For those that like something different, I think it would make an excellent dip for french fries.
The next time that you need honey mustard, give this a try. It should win you over.
- 1 Tb. honey
- 2 Tb. yellow mustard
- Place honey in a small, microwavable bowl, and heat for 10 seconds on high setting.
- Add mustard and stir well to combine.
- If using as a salad dressing, it should be used soon and not refrigerated, as it will thicken.
- As noted, you can increase or decrease the amounts of either ingredient to create the flavor you desire.
