This easy dressing is slightly sweet and slightly tangy. It's great on sandwiches as well as salads.
6 tablespoons light or extra light olive oil*
2 tablespoons lemon juice
2 tablespoons honey
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
Shaking method: Combine all ingredients in a jar or cruet with a tight-fitting lid. Shake until well blended.
Whisking method: Combine all ingredients in a bowl. Whisk until well blended.
Use immediately or refrigerate. If using later, shake or whisk again just before using.
-- Approximately 2/3 cup of dressing
* You can use extra virgin olive oil if you want a strong olive taste. However, I prefer to use light or extra light olive oil in this recipe to let the honey and Dijon flavors shine through more assertively.
