The Best Honey Mustard Salad Dressing Recipe Ever (Shared By a Restaurant)

Give the old standby (aka ranch salad dressing) a break and try this easy honey mustard salad dressing recipe. It's another recipe I talked the restaurant out of sharing with me. The restaurant is now out of business, so I am relieved I can keep making their creamy honey mustard salad dressing at home.

This salad dressing is simple to prepare. Whisk together mayonnaise, vegetable oil, honey and mustard in a bowl until well combined. Then whisk in the apple cider vinegar and ground cayenne. Don't leave the ground cayenne out, because it adds a depth of flavor to this creamy dressing. Trust me.

This honey mustard salad dressing recipe makes a lot, so feel free to cut it in half. It's great on salads and as a dip for chicken tenders or chicken wings, or french fries, tater tots and onion rings.
