I am a huge fan of making homemade dressings. They are extremely easy to make, cost effective and much more delicious, not to mention healthier than the bottled stuff. Think about it.
Now I am a true blood New Yorker at heart which means, I must hit the town and dine out a few times a week. This gives me plenty of tasting opportunities and when I run across a yummy dressing…I make sure to ask for the recipe. Most of the time, I get some vague answer, but that isn’t a problem, that is a challenge. With my new flavor discovery, I go into my kitchen, and like a mad scientist, I try my hand at re-creating it. This was one of those inspired moments….
For the Recipe
1⁄4 cup honey or agave
1⁄2 teaspoon dry mustard or ground ginger
1⁄2 cup apple cider vinegar
1 tsp sea salt
1 cup extra virgin olive oil
1⁄4 tsp cayenne pepper
Mix all the ingredients in a bowl with a wire whisk. Whisk until everything is nice and blended together.
