Honey Dijon Salad Dressing and Marinade



Happy Monday!  I’m a little late to the party this morning because I spent all my time watching football yesterday and MY PANTHERS ARE GOING TO THE SUPER BOWL! Woot!  Sorry for shouting, but we’re all super excited here in the Carolinas.




We’re going to keep things short and simple today because it’s Monday and see above.  Never in the history of this here website (I think) have I ever shared just a salad dressing sans salad.  I’m not sure that this is a legit post, but we’re doing it anyway because this is my party and I’ll post what I want to.  You dig?

This Honey Dijon Salad Dressing works either on a salad, as a marinade, or you could use it as a dipping sauce if you want to.  I’ve made it several times over the last year or so and it rocks our world. We’ve had it on shrimp, chicken, and salmon topped salads and it’s delicious on everything.




I almost always make our own salad dressings.  The exception is when we want Blue Cheese.  I always have a jar of the stuff from the produce section in my fridge.  Don’t judge me.  And I know that a jar of salad dressing is not the sexiest thing to see on a Monday, but it’s fast, easy, delicious, and totally worth sharing.  Have a great week, y’all!

P.S. Don’t forget about the giveaway!  It ends on Wednesday and one lucky winner will receive a $700 Amazon gift card!

  1. A dressing totally counts as a post if you ask me, Rachelle! ESPECIALLY when it doubles as a marinade! LOVING the honey-dijon-tarragon flavors in here! Sounds sexy to me. 😉 Definitely pinning this to my condiment/dressing board! Glad you had a good, safe weekend in the snow (loved the puppies video on FB)! And WOOT WOOT to the panthers going to the Super Bowl. I’ll be rooting for them for sure. Cheers, sweets! xo

  2. Congratulations! What a game!!! My husband and I scared our poor dogs because we kept screaming every time there was a pick. And that was approximately every five minutes-haha! Cam and the rest of the team were amazing. I’m going to cheer for the Panthers and the Broncos because I love both teams and those are the two states that we’re considering for a second home someday. 😉

    Salad dressing is soooo sexy! Especially on a Monday morning. I could eat it with a spoon.

  3. I love making my own salad dressings, but tend to revert back to the same ones over and over again. So, I totally appreciate this post because I can add a new one into my rotation! I’m a huge dijon mustard fan, so I know I’ll love this. I also have a champagne vinegar obsession, so this is right up my alley! Congrats on your team heading to the super bowl 🙂

  4. I love making my own salad dressings too, but generally it’s just a plain old lemon vinaigrette. I’ve been wanting to try out a homemade caesar, in any case your recipe sounds delicious! Also, congratulations on the Panthers heading to the Super Bowl, right next door here in Virginia…so gotta give some love to the Panthers (even though I’m super sad Washington didn’t make it :() at least we were the NFC East champs after sooo long!

  5. Not only is this a simple throw together, it sounds delish and also offers many uses. I like the idea of a dipping sauce. Definitely will give this one a try. Thanks!

  6. Yesterday was the worst day of my life. Not only has my football season ended and I have to wait a full 8 months to watch another game, but I’m refusing to watch the Super Bowl because that game going to suck anyways. At least I have a killer honey dijon salad dressing recipe to drown my sorrows in. I’m going to marinate some boneless southern style pork ribs in it and grill them too. Yum!

  7. Honey Dijon is one of my very favorite dressings and as a marinade for chicken or maybe even salmon would be stellar! Congratulations on your Panthers going to the Super Bowl! It’s already getting crazy out here prepping for the game! Should be a good one!

  8. Congratulations on the win! We here in Patriot Nation are mourning. To be honest, I’m not a HUGE football fan so I’ll get over it soon enough. This dressing soundss wonderful! It would probably be awesome in pasta salads too!

  9. A homemade salad dressing is always allowed to be shared…especially on a Monday! We’ve been whipping up salad dressings here to mix up our daily salads for lunch, and this honey dijon one sounds like it needs to be on the list! The Panthers totally dominated on Sunday, too…and I thought about you. I used to be a Panthers fan back when I lived in the Carolinas. I can only imagine how crazy that area is now that they’re back in the Super Bowl…and with a really good team this year. Good luck!

  10. Congrats on your Panthers! They’ve had a tremendous season, and I’m really psyched about the two teams going to the Super Bowl. Hey, no Tom Brady. That’s a good football year!
    Honey Dijon dressing is one of my all time faves!
