Mustard and me… we have a tumultuous past.

So tumultuous, in fact, that I wasn’t into mustard like everybody and their mom until I was in my 20’s.

Honestly, I blame it on a bad sandwich experience when I was a kid, and I stayed away from the stuff afterwards, not wanting to unknowingly singe off my tastebuds again after mistakingly assuming the condiment on my turkey-and-swiss was run-of-the-mill yellow mustard, not spicy mustard. Yow. (We’ve all made this mistake… some of us just recover differently.)

Oh, goodness, I can hear you saying right now. Here she goes again. She’s telling another story about not liking some kind of food. She’s really picky and weird for a food blogger. Why should I trust her opinion, anyway?

    All I can say is, I know. And I promise that part of this food blogging fun is my taste buds are ever evolving, so I’m learning I like (and dislike) new foods all the time, so they’ll keep us endlessly entertained.

    It’s ridiculous that I was a mustard hater for a really long time. In fact, wouldn’t even give honey mustard a chance, and we all know that I love sweet stuff.

    What changed my mind? All it took was a simple, well-dressed salad… and that’s all she wrote. That fateful day, I realized that Honey Mustard was actually incredible stuff, and ever since, I’ve taken baby steps to adding mustard into dishes that I cook. While it’s still not my favorite sandwich condiment, I’m cool when mustard shows up in a dish, and I no longer run away from it, even if I do sometimes encounter the spicy kind.

    Today, I’m sharing a quick, flavorful salad dressing with y’all that will accompany Monday’s post, and I’m really excited about both of these because (1) I’m sharing a salad, (2) this Creamy Honey Mustard Dressing is ah-mazing and (3) it’s all super simple to make… and you’ve probably got the ingredients in your fridge right now!

      1. I KNOW, right? I’m working on the whole liking mustard thing, so baby steps. 😉

        I’m glad mustard is one of your faves. I aspire for it to be one of mine. And HOORAY! So happy I can be your new hero for providing this dressing.

    1. I have always loved mustard–probably because my mom had a jar of dijon on the fridge for my entire childhood. Yellow mustard, no–but dijon, yes. Needless to say, mustard is THE condiment of choice at our house. 🙂 So you know I am definitely all about a dressing with not one but two kinds of mustard! Must try.

      1. That would make a lot of sense, and I get the whole dijon vs. yellow mustard thing. Not really a fan of yellow mustard, though dijon has definitely grown on me.

        Let me know what you think of the dressing!

    2. Erin you make my heart sing with all these wonderful recipes! Thank you for sharing 🙂 Hope you have a great weekend!

    3. I feel the EXACT same way about mustard. I’m slowly appreciating it more and more, especially on a beerwurst with sauerkraut and I just discovered a mustard bacon dressing. This sounds delicious and healthier, will try soon!

      1. High-five for being skeptical about mustard, Kathy! I’m glad that you’re appreciating it a bit more like me, too. And you’re gonna have to share this mustard bacon dressing that you speak of because that sounds intriguing!

    4. Ohhhh yum. I love mustard, I always have so this recipe sounds glorious! I make honey mustard dressing regularly but always with cream not yoghurt. I like the idea of the extra ‘tang’ plus yoghurt is just naturally more healthy for you! Thanks hon. Glad that you’ve finally caught on to the mustard magic! xx

      1. I love that you make your own honey mustard dressing often, and I can’t wait to hear what you think about this once since it adds the tang of yogurt. 🙂 Happy that I’ve caught on to the magical qualities of mustard, too. Thanks for stopping by, lovely!

    5. I’m totally with you on mustard! I used to completely avoid it but have been slowly easing it into more and more of my food choices…the honey definitely makes it more appealing for me, so I’m looking forward to trying this dressing out!

      1. Glad I’m not the only one who’s a bit skeptical of mustard but is coming around to it slowly and surely the older I get. 🙂 I agree with you on the honey making it easier to like, and I cannot wait to hear what you think about the dressing when you give it a shot.
