Honey Mustard Vinaigrette

Welcome to Our Sunday Café, we are pleased you stopped by for a visit. Today we are offering another delicious recipe from our kitchen. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did…

Since we began our journey as full-time RV travelers and volunteers with the NPS, I have made many changes to our meals. But the biggest change is that we actually eat a larger variety of food and have less “leftovers”. There are a number of reasons, but the biggest reason for both of these changes is largely due to storage. The cupboards and refrigerator offer the same challenge, they don’t hold as much as a standard kitchen.

Because the refrigerator is smaller, large amounts of leftovers are a problem. We no longer have the space to store a couple of meals worth of cooked food for a few days, in order to come back around to enjoy it again later. Honestly, I can enjoy the same meal twice in a row, but my preference would be that a different meal is offered.

But I have found a silver lining in this small space cloud, I have become more creative and we actually eat better. This kitchen is full of great whole food ingredients and they are put to delicious use. Whole grain fresh baked bread, less meat, more vegetables and often, fruit as dessert. With a well-stocked kitchen, no matter how small, good food is still happening!

A salad is a great way to make sure you get your vegetables for the day. Because we are so rural at our current park, we don’t always have salad greens, but we always have other fresh vegetables and homegrown sprouts to put together for a quick salad anytime. And the best part of an impromptu salad? The dressing of course!

This Honey Mustard Vinaigrette salad dressing is easy, calls for basic ingredients and is perfectly delicious! It is not as sweet as a commercially prepared dressing, however, so if you prefer that level of sweetness, add a bit more honey.
I hope you give it a try.

PS, don’t leave out the soy sauce, it is the easiest way to add “salt” to the dressing!
