I came up with this recipe a few years ago. It is easy/peasy to make and is my go-to dressing for a nice Summer salad out by the pond. But it is also amazing as a dipping sauce for things like chicken tenders and fish. Will be serving it tonight on a salad of greens, veggies, and sliced deli turkey. So, you ready… Let’s get into the kitchen.

How To Make salad/dip essentials: mayo/mustard/honey delight

    Homemade Mayonnaise To be sure, there are some good store-bought mayo’s on the market (my all-time favorite is Duke’s) If you live in the South, you have probably seen it on the shelves of your local grocer; however, as you travel North, it becomes as scarce as hen’s teeth. If you would like to take a stab at making your own (it really is not all that difficult), check out this recipe:

    If you do not want to use pickle juice, you can always substitute an equal amount of freshly squeezed lemon juice, or perhaps some apple-cider vinegar.
  • 4
    Gather your ingredients (mise en place).
  • 5
    Whisk all the ingredients together, and store in a non-reactive container in the fridge until required.

  • So yummy
    Use on salads, drizzle over fish or chicken, or as a dip. Enjoy.
