Spicy Honey-Mustard Dressing for One

Homemade salad dressing is the bomb. It’s wicked easy to make, cheap, and helps prevent plastic waste! AND most importantly it’s delicious.

This is a single serving recipe but you can also make a larger batch and store it in the fridge. You can also try a thicker, higher protein version with Greek yogurt.

This goes great with grilled chicken breast, red onions, chunks of apple, and sharp cheddar cheese!

Fueling notes:

  • Per serving, this dressing packs 17 grams of carbs and 14 grams of fat
  • To fuel with a salad (especially pre-climbing) make sure you’re including plenty of carbs (fruit, croutons, beans, etc) and some protein at least 2 hours before climbing or ideally no more than an hour or two afterwards

The Stuff

  • 1 tablespoon of honey
  • 1 tablespoon of southwestern spicy mustard (I get this at Aldi) or honey mustard with a pinch of red pepper flakes
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 tablespoon of white vinegar
  • Salt and pepper to taste

The Steps

  1. Combine the ingredients in a small bowl or Tupperware
