Do you like your dressing pungent? This oil free honey mustard dressing recipe hits the spot and is actually made with vegan honey.
I figure why put anything on my salad if I can’t taste it. Oil, in fact, actually makes the dressing milder. So bring on the mustard!
For this vegan honey mustard dressing, there’s even very little “sugar.” Instead, there’s applesauce and only 1 tablespoon of vegan honey or maple syrup if you don’t have vegan honey on hand. Be sure to also use unsweetened apple juice to keep the sugars low.
It can be difficult to find soy yogurt in the store so you can make your own with the homemade soy yogurt recipe or leave it out. Either way works. You could even use tofu mayonnaise as the base for this vegan honey mustard recipe.
