Basic Honey Mustard Salad Vinaigrette

This dressing is my husband’s creation and current obsession. It’s a great go to for a dinner salad and easy to prepare quickly. And once you make a batch, it will last for awhile. The best thing is, you can use higher quality oil than what you see in 99% of store bought salad dressings and vinaigrettes, and it costs a fraction of the price you would pay for one made with good quality oils.
