We both so loved this copycat of the honey mustard salad dressing from Applebee’s that we ended up making a big batch for salad week. Salad week comes along every few weeks here. Like the name implies, for that one week we eat nothing but salads. I look forward to salad week. In a way, I used to also look forward to salad week ending. That was until this dressing came along. Delightfully creamy, it’s a sweet mustardy dressing that strikes just the right balance. I don’t usually like things that are overly mustardy, and this dressing is spot-on perfect.

I would not use a light mayonnaise when making this copycat Applebee’s honey mustard salad dressing. I think a full-strength mayonnaise gives it a better consistency. Sure, you can use a light one if you prefer, but I think the extra calories are worth the better thickness and taste. For me, that means Blue Plate mayonnaise. It’s the only one I use, no matter what the recipe is. And there’s no reason to skimp on the Dijon, use a good, quality mustard. The better the ingredients, the better the dressing!
