So I admit it: I haven’t liked salads really until recently, and I’d be lying if I said the ‘recently’ part of that statement wasn’t due to losing some of the baby weight. BUT I’ll also admit that during pregnancy, when I was eating the same.thing.every.single.day, nothing sounded better to me than a big fat fresh salad.
Now that it’s salad season and our house is chock-full of lettuce and all things salad-y I have come to realize that I don’t actually like salad again. Here’s the addendum to that though: I don’t like salad using bottled dressings. And this, my friends, is where I change my tune.
- 1/2 cup dijon mustard
- 3-4 Tbsp honey (I lean more toward the 3 Tbsp range, but if you like it sweeter feel free to use more)
- 1/4 cup olive oil
- 1-2 tsp lemon juice (I only use 1 tsp; I like the extra acidity)
- 1/2 tsp garlic powder
- 1/4 tsp pepper
