My boys and I are very into salads right now. And It’s my job to change it up with different and fun salad dressings to keep them interested. The scrumptious salad above is 100% from my garden. It includes a variety of lettuces, dino kale, tomatoes and cucumbers. I love sending the boys out to “pick” a dish that we will be having for dinner, and it’s great to hang out in the kitchen with them while they wash and chop the vegetables.
I find that gluten free salad dressings that have a little bit of tang and sweetness keep the boys interested in their veggies. Here’s one of our favorites.
Honey Mustard Dressing
- 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
- 2 tablespoons dijon mustard
- 1 tablespoon honey
- ½ cup olive oil
- In a medium mason jar, combine apple cider vinegar, mustard, honey, and olive oil
- Shake well until combined
- Serve over mixed greens
- Store in mason jar in refrigerator for up to 3 days
Did you know that today, September 13th, is Celiac Awareness Day? It is also the date of Samuel Gee’s birthday. Samuel Gee is credited with being the first person to find a link between Celiac Disease and diet. He once said “if the patient can be cured at all, it must be by means of diet.”
In honor of Celiac Awareness Day I’ll be doing a book signing at the Whole Foods on Pearl Street in Boulder from 4:30-6:30pm tonight, September 13th. Hope to see you there!

Yum! Honey mustard is one of my favorites!
I can’t wait to serve this with my next salad or chicken!
I made this using coconut oil today. It was fantastic and the coconut oil just gave it a different favor!
Love this dressing.

I’m always looking for new dressing ideas, this looks great!
I love how simple your salad dressing recipe is. I will for sure try it. Thanks!
Yum! Honey mustard is one of my favs.
Elana, I have your book and love reading it, as well as your website. As I am prediabetic, I have had to watch my carb intake with a focus on the Glycemic Index of food. Almond flour is perfect because it is made from almond nuts, hence has low GI and does not cause swings in blood sugar levels. I have passed on the info about almond meal to family members, and turned them onto several recipes I make from your book. Question I have concerning agave. My grandson has autism and the autism boards say not to consume it, so my daughter-in-law doesn’t want me cooking things for him with agave. Is honey, or sugar syrup (not corn syrup, but Lyle’s golden syrup) interchangeable with agave in all the recipes?
Again, thanks for the wonderful recipes and information on your website. Peace and all best wishes, Marjorie
I’ve made something similar before, but not with the apple cider vinegar. What a great idea to add it to the dressing.
Will be tossing this together tonight!
I’m going to try this with maple syrup instead of honey. I have fructose malabsorbtion and agave and honey are both too high in fructose for my tummy to tolerate but maple goes down just fine :)
