RECIPE: Honey Mustard Dressing/Dip

I've seen many recipes for Honey Mustard Dressing that decry the use of mayonnaise and the neon yellow color but they all use huge amounts of honey. I believe seed-oil free mayonnaise is healthier than all that fructose/glucose.  It's also much cheaper.  Organic raw honey is expensive!

I've made this without the yellow mustard and it doesn't taste as good.  Since the yellow color occurs naturally (in the brand we use it comes from turmeric), I'm OK with it.  If you use a different brand PLEASE insure it's not made with synthetic dye!

Honey Mustard Dressing
Makes 1 cup

1/2 c. mayonnaise, preferably homemade
3 t. yellow mustard (I used Whole Food's Organic)
4 t. honey (I used Tropical Traditions Organic)
1 t. apple cider vinegar or lemon juice (I use Natural Nectar Biodynamic ACV)
1/8 t. cayenne

Mix all together and chill.

I reverse engineered this from the dressing served at Houston's with their Grilled Chicken Salad (years ago, at their restaurant in Chicago which is now closed.   I don't know what they serve at their other locations).  We use it as dressing for all salads, as a dip for raw vegetables, and as a drizzle for roasted veggies.  It's my husband's favorite dressing!
