I have always loved Honey Mustard Dressing. That sassy, sweet, bite of flavor, sometimes coupled with a spicy kick. So today I give you a super simple vegan version, my Three Ingredient No-Honey Mustard Dressing! It has bold flavor that will transform your salad greens, raw veggies, skillet veggies, legumes and more in a flash! And is whisks together in seconds with a simple fork…
Drizzle this dressing over all your favorite veggies and salads and add flavor in seconds! Yes, this was a BIG drizzle..
I love this dressing drizzled over raw leafy greens and other salad ingredients, but it is also really delicious as a warm sauce too…
I recently took a few cups of leftover steamed cauliflower, broke the large pieces into florets, and tossed them in a hot skillet with a splash of EVOO. About a minute before finishing up the quick saute, I drizzled in my vegan honey-mustard sauce. The skillet sizzled, the cauliflower browned and caramelized in seconds from the sweet maple ingredient – which browns and caramelizes quite quickly. The finished “honey mustard cauliflower” was super delicious! I served it with some fluffy quinoa and leftover spicy chickpeas.
This sauce/dressing is also a great dip for vegan protein items like tempeh, tofu triangles of sticks, or even vegan protein products like Gardein and BeyondMeat, Field Roast and more.
For the salad in the photos I did a super simple combo of chopped honeycrisp apples + raw walnuts and this honey mustard dressing – coating the baby lettuces. This salad was so simple, but SO good. Perfect for fall! I devoured it.
To make this a meal, all I would’ve needed to add – some skillet chickpeas, tempeh cubes, tofu or lentils or other vegan protein-rich goodies. Maybe some avocado toast on the side, or soup. Y-u-m.
Success Tip.. This dressing is a bold sauce. In other words, a little goes a long way. If you want a thinner, less intense dressing you can add 1-2 teaspoon lemon juice or even water. You can also reduce the maple syrup by a touch if you want it less sweet. Add more vegan mayo for a creamier texture. Play around with these three ingredients if needed.
