Don’t think salads only…
There are many delicious uses for chipotle honey mustard dressing. Yes, it’s great on salads, but don’t stop there. That smoky chipotle pepper flavor, mustard tang, and honey sweetness make a perfect trio as a sandwich spread, a burger topping, or a chicken finger dip. It’s a dressing with a relatively bold flavor, so it works with white meats as well as beef.
We use a full teaspoon of chipotle powder in this recipe. It’s not super-hot, but not exactly mild spiciness either. If you prefer to temper the spiciness (at least to start), use half a teaspoon of chipotle powder and add to taste.
Chipotle Honey Mustard Dressing
- 1/4 cup mayonnaise
- 3 tablespoons Dijon mustard
- 3 tablespoons water
- 2 tablespoons honey
- 1 teaspoon chipotle powder
- Pinch salt
- In a mixing bowl, combine all ingredients. Stir well.
- Use immediately, or for best flavor allow the dressing to chill in the refrigerator for a minimum of 2 hours (to allow the flavors to meld).
Prefer less heat? Halve the amount of chipotle powder used to 1/2 teaspoon.
