If you've ever lived in the South, I'm certain you've acquired a taste for somethings that some other people just wouldn't understand. For me it's sweet tea, cajun boiled peanuts, fried okra, creamed corn and honey mustard. I've kicked that nasty, sweet tea habit. I'm 5lb lighter because of it. Anyway, honey mustard! It's not the "chic-est" dressing but (of course) I think my recipe is sooo "Southern Belle chic." It's perfect on a grilled ham and cheese. I wasn't going to say it, but yes, chicken tender dippin' is allowed.
This is for the good folks out there who love sweet & tangy salad dressing. Did I mention that it’s so good? I think it's because of the buttery, caramelized onion...shhh, that's my secret.
“You’re My Honey” Mustard-
Makes 1 & 1/2 Cups
- 1/2 small white onion, diced
- 1 T butter or oil (butter may curd if you store it for a while)
- 3 T grainy mustard (I use this one)
- 3 T honey
- 1 T light brown sugar
- 1/2 C raw apple cider vinegar
- 1 C extra virgin olive oil
On medium heat, in a small pan, caramelize the onion in butter, really cook it down, salt lightly. Add the onion and the rest of the ingredients into your food processor and let it run until it's smooth and creamy!
Note- If you want to serve this with chicken, pork or something, you can warm it in a small pan on low heat.
Refrigerate for up to 2 weeks. Stir and let sit out for a few to soften.
If any of you are from the South you better holler at me from the comment box! Later friend.
