I feel like we are a couple of weeks behind everyone else, but it’s finally back-to-school week at my house. We’re getting back into the swing of things, painfully shedding our summertime schedules and trying to remember what it’s like to set alarm clocks and adhere to bedtime routines. Since I’m totally a creature of habit, I look forward to this time of year. I love having my daughter home with me all summer long, but I thrive on schedules and routines.
Plus, do you know how much tidier my house is during the school year? Five days a week of tag-teaming little girls makes for a seriously messy house. All of the time. ALL OF THE TIME.
With school and extracurricular activities, it’s also time to dust-off my old meal planning notebook. (Yes, I have one of those. Doesn’t everyone? No?) Summertime afforded the luxury of late dinners, last-minute trips to the grocery store and making due with what we had in the pantry. Back-to-school means back to quick and easy meals, readily available around the clock.
And what’s quicker and easier than a salad?
This quick and easy homemade honey mustard salad dressing is one of my favorite salad dressings of all time. I usually just make enough for one salad, but this keeps really well in the refrigerator for a couple of weeks, so don’t be afraid to make a bigger batch. We use an organic canola Mayo and organic yellow mustard, and of course honey from our own bees, so it’s a much healthier option – in terms of knowing your ingredients – than store bought. It’s also much less expensive. Win!
This is also a PERFECT dip for homemade pretzels. Like, stuff-your-face amazing. Try it.
