Easy & Delicious: Honey and Apple Cider Vinaigrette

I don't really even think of this as a 'recipe' but as I was sitting down to eat my salad I quickly snapped a picture on my phone to share on An American Housewife.  So easy, simple and delicious!

This dressing is a vinaigrette that pairs well with almost any additional ingredients you want to add to your basic salad.  Start with this dressing and a lettuce base.  Then add anything from strawberries or blueberries, to poppy seeds, raspberries, a splash of balsamic vinegar, feta cheese, mozzarella cheese, shredded cabbage, toasted sunflower seeds, sliced almonds... the list goes on.  Or just eat it as it is!  No additions needed.

Honey and Apple Cider Vinaigrette

1/2 cup honey (I use natural honey, sugar free honey or a mixture of both; depending on what we have on hand)
1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
1 t salt
2 t mustard seed
1 c oil (canola, olive, grape seed or a mixture of all three)

Shake well in a jar or use a dressing container with a pump mixer or ball.  Let it set for about 2 hours if you can for the flavors to mix before using.  When chilled in the refrigerator the oils might solidify (if you used olive oil) but will melt quickly at room temperature or run the container under hot water briefly to warm the oil back to liquid form.
