Lavender and Honey Salad Dressing

by cdkitchen


6 T. extra virgin olive oil
2 T. cider vinegar
1 T. lemon juice
1 crushed garlic clove
1 t. coarse grain mustard
2 T. honey
1 t. dried lavender flowers

Whisk all ingredients together and allow to stand for 30 minutes to blend flavors. Editor’s note: This recipe called for balsamic vinegar which is how it was made for the honey party. I feel as though the balsamic vinegar overwhelmed the rest of the flavors and I am recommending the lighter vinegar.

Spiced Orange Crème Dressing

by Beth Conrey


1 C sour cream
¼ c. fresh orange juice
¼ c. honey
1 t. cardamom
½ t. nutmeg
Whisk together.

Editor’s note: I usually serve this dressing with a grilled pork and cantaloupe salad. I think it would be really good with fruit, too.
