Healthy Maple-Mustard Salad Dressing

Pin It

A healthy vegan salad dressing with a fresh and tangy flavour that can be drizzled over salad, roasted vegetables or boiled new potatoes.  Made with wholesome ingredients including olive oil, mustard, maple syrup, basil and parsley.

The HB and I have long since been obsessed with Mary Berry’s Classic Salad Dressing and have used it for many years – it is a firm favourite and we rarely have any other salad dressing in the fridge.  Whilst the ingredients are pretty good in the shop bought version, I couldn’t help thinking how nice it would be to create a version with some healthier ingredient swaps such as olive oil instead of rapeseed, and maple syrup rather than sugar, so that is what I have done!

The beauty of this healthy vegan salad dressing recipe is that it can be whipped up in just 3 minutes with no hassle or faff, using ingredients that you are likely to have in your fridge or pantry.  You can make it as directed for a ‘serves 2’ or double or triple the recipe and keep it in an airtight bottle in the fridge for use during the week.  I’m super pleased with how it turned out, it is just as delicious as the original but with even more goodness.  Enjoy!

* Traditional dijon mustard is made with wine and some therefore may not be vegan, so please check the pack before buying. I’ve found that most supermarket brands tend to be made with vinegar instead and are vegan-friendly.
