This dressing has been my very favorite for years now.  The flavors of garlic, dijon mustard, and honey work so well together and make any salad over the top delicious!

One of the reasons I like this dressing so much is that it tastes so fresh (because it is), and it is super easy to throw together!  It will keep in the fridge for several days to a week.  It could probably last longer but I am over cautious when it comes to food safety!  Tonight, I grilled some tilapia, made some garlic brown rice (it was from a box and scrumptious), and served this salad and dressing along side of them.  Healthy, filling and super tasty!

If you are used to buying bottled dressings, I would urge you to just give this a whirl.  I think you will see that it is worth the little bit of extra time it takes to make it from scratch!

 (I usually double this recipe)
2-3 Garlic Cloves, minced
Enough salt to make a paste
1 tablespoon White Wine Vinegar
1 tablespoon fresh squeezed Lemon
2 teaspoons Honey
1 teaspoon Worcestershire
1/2 teaspoon Dijon Mustard
1/4 cup Olive Oil
Fresh Ground Pepper
With the back of a spoon mash the garlic and salt into a paste.
Combine the other ingredients and add to the garlic paste.
Whisk all ingredients together until well incorporated.
Serve over your choice of salad greens.
