Just 4 ingredients, this tangy oil-free salad dressing transforms your greens or pasta salad from dull to delicious. Shake everything up in a mason jar and you're done in under 4 minutes!
For this oil-free salad dressing, you'll need:
- red wine vinegar
- dijon mustard
- whole grain mustard
- honey or other liquid sweetener (maple syrup, brown rice syrup or agave)
- salt and pepper
The easiest way to mix this dressing up is to use a mason jar. Pick a mason jar that will hold at least 12 ounces. A pint or quart mason jar will both work.
Looking for mason jars? I use them for everything! You can usually find them in the grocery store or Walmart. But, they also sell them on Amazon.
Add all the ingredients to the mason jar, screw on the lid tightly and then shake it up!
If you don't have a mason jar, you can add all the ingredients to a medium sized bowl and whisk them together.
💭 Top Tips
How long will this oil-free salad dressing last?
- This dressing will last 1-2 weeks in the refrigerator in a sealed container. The glass mason jar you used to mix it up is the perfect container to store it. Just put a lid on it and put it in the refrigerator with your other salad dressings.
Should I use honey or maple syrup?
- Honey will make the dressing thicker, but is not vegan. If you don't eat honey, then I would recommend using maple syrup, brown rice syrup or agave nectar to sweeten this dressing
Is honey vegan?
- No. Honey is not considered vegan because it is an animal product. To make this dressing vegan, use maple syrup, brown rice syrup or agave to sweeten it.
Is honey plant-based?
- Yes. Most plant-based diets allow honey, maple syrup, coconut sugar, dates and other sweeteners.
