My favorite salad dressing is Caribbean Garlic by Island Grove. It's a honey mustard dressing with lime and garlic. Due to an allergy to vegetable gums that I have, all commercially made salad dressings are a no no for me. I created this to fulfill that need. This recipe makes a small amount, but you could easily double it. I prefer to make small amounts since I eats a lot of salad and like to vary my choices. Hope you enjoy this dressing as much as I do.

Very, very delicious, and I was looking for awhile for honey mustard that didn't have mayonnaise in it! I doubled the recipe. My own tweaks for the future- leave out the salt, and don't use too large a garlic clove.

Let this sit for a few hours and you'll taste each ingredient in this dressing! I used regular Dijon mustard and when I'm watching the callories I'll cut down the oil . I liked the sweetness from the honey.

I'm a big fan of using honey & Dijon mustard combos, & this, along with the citrus juice, made A VERY NICE TASTING DRESSING! Thanks for the great keeper of a recipe! [Tagged, made ;& reviewed in Potluck tag]
