Oil Free Honey Mustard Salad Dressing – 3 Ingredients Recipe

Yields: About 1/2 cup
Prep time: 5 minutes


  • 1/4 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice (about 1 large lemon)
  • 1/4 cup Dijon mustard
  • 2 tablespoons raw honey (or pure maple syrup for a vegan option)


  • Combine ingredients: In a small bowl or jar, whisk together the lemon juice, Dijon mustard, and honey (or maple syrup) until well combined and smooth.
  • Taste and adjust: Give your dressing a taste. Add more lemon juice for extra tang, honey/maple syrup for sweetness, or a pinch of salt for balance if needed.
  • Serve or store: Use the dressing immediately on your favorite salad or store it in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to a week. You might need to give it a quick whisk before using if it separates slightly.


  • Mustard Matters: Use a good quality Dijon mustard you enjoy the taste of, as it provides the main flavor base.
  • Mix it up: Experiment with a little garlic powder or a pinch of black pepper for extra flavor dimensions.
  • Make it creamy: For a creamier version, add 2-3 tablespoons of unsweetened plant-based yogurt or silken tofu. Blend until smooth for an extra creamy consistency.
