Healthy Honey Mustard Dressing

If your kids are like mine, they love to drown anything in honey mustard.  But let’s face it, commercial honey mustard brands almost always contain high fructose corn syrup and artificial dyes as you have read in my Salad Dressing Exposed post.  This healthy honey mustard recipe is a dressing that will cost less to make and you most likely have all the ingredients already just laying around!

  1. Had some of this today. I was looking for something sweet to counteract the insanely (almost inedible for me) strong taste of the OrganicGirl pepper greens salad I had. I put more dressing on there than I normally would and it did an okay job. It’s pretty good on its own. Not quite what I remember of honey mustard (probably because it’s less sweet due to being a healthy version! lol), but it’s still pretty good. I think I’ll experiment with other kinds of mustard in the future. 🙂 Thanks for the recipe! First time I’ve used Greek yogurt to make a dressing.

  2. I don’t get it. Why is mixing honey and mustard healthy? Doesn’t sweeteners disrupt digestion when in main courses?

    1. Raw honey contains over 5000 enzymes including amylase, a digestive enzyme for carbohydrates. The benefit of ingesting naturally occurring enzymes such as amylase is that it reduces the burden on the body to produce these enzymes itself to digest the food. Not to mention the benefits of yogurt and the healthy bacteria it adds to the digestive system.
