Salad/Dip Essentials: Mayo/Mustard/Honey Delight

Andy Anderson !


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


  2. 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:

  3. 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.
  7. Use on salads, drizzle over fish or chicken, or as a dip. Enjoy.
  8. Keep the faith, and keep cooking.

It gets its name because it includes foods from regions around the Mediterranean Sea, like Greece, Italy, and Spain. Vegetables, whole grains, legumes, fish, and healthy fats (such as olive […]
