Egg-free, garlic-free honey mustard dressing

Submitted by on Monday, 5 October 2009 No Comment
This recipe is another adult coupe against the kids - Mom's sick of ranch dressing again.

I knew making it would mean Big Guy would resume his salad boycott, so we might have to become a two-dressing family. The heck of it is, if he'd just try it, he'd love it. I tried serving it last week as part of the buffet, as a dip for wieners and pretzels. No dice. Maybe in another decade or so.

The taste is great, Dad agreed. It's not thick enough, though. That's the hazard of egg-free dressing - the Vegenaise I use simply results in thinner dressings because the whisking seems to break it down. I've toyed with the idea of either using less lemon juice or more sour cream, but I think either move would compromise the taste.

The original recipe, from, calls for Dijon mustard, but I didn't have any on hand. Annie's Naturals makes a garlic-free Dijon, though, that I'm eager to try.

Honey-mustard dressing

  • 1/3 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/3 cup mustard - many store labels and off brands are garlic-free, but be sure to check.
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 3/4 cup sour cream
  • 1 tbl. lemon juice

Mix honey and mustard. Add to sour cream and whisk until smooth. Then add mayonnaise and lemon juice.
