Pour this on a fresh picked bed of baby greens like arugula. Top with some rich creamy cheese like a warmed blue. Then top it with some toasted pine nuts! Yummy!!

So simple but the flavors are so interesting. My dressing came out much darker than the photo, sort of a purple color which looked so great over greens. We had it with our side salads tonight but I plan on using the left overs to drizzle over some bruschetta I'm making tomorrow. A real keeper. Thanks for sharing!
I absolutely love this recipe. I tried this at home and served it on greens and took it to work, it was a big hit. Simular only I used 1 tablespoon of honey, lemon juice not lime, herbs de porvance (I crushed these). I had a simular dressing at Cuvee' in Del Mar, CA and the Chef' would not give me the recipe. I am so greatful for this website. Thank you so much.
I can't believe that after all this time I've never rated this recipe before! I always make my own salad dressings and other than my own 'every day salad dressing' this has become our absolute favorite salad dressing. The only change I make is to use Maple syrup instead of the honey and I'm more generous with the grainy mustard (heaping tsp.) I use my Braun hand held mixer that has it's own little container and it blends up quickly into a beautiful thick dressing...OMG it's so good! Usually makes enough for 2 big salads. I've seen the other lavender dressing recipes but I don't even want to try them because my family and friends would kill me! PS. The addition of some goat cheese just puts this recipe over the creamy top!
