Honey mustard vinaigrette is one of my favorite ways to dress up a salad. It tastes just like the real deal — sweet and zingy with warming honey undertones.

This low carb, keto version cleverly uses a combination of Sukrin Gold and bee pollen to achieve the honey flavour while staying low-carb. Instead of Sukrin, feel free to use any other brown sugar substitute such as Lakanto, Swerve, or other low-carb sweeteners such as stevia drops (3-5 drops will be enough).

This low-carb recipe makes just about a cup of salad dressing, and can be stored in the fridge for up to three weeks.

Note that the olive oil will solidify once cooled in the fridge — this it totally fine and will seal the dressing and help to preserve it for longer.

To serve, bring to room temperature and then shake before using. Drizzle over salads, baked salmon, roast chicken or steak!

I use The Skinny Food Co vegan honey for all honey related recipes. Tastes great and 0carb/cals

Thank you, I just wish they didn't use thickeners, preservatives and colors to make it. A bit of a vegan junk product. Sticking with bee pollen for now.

Why do you choose to use very odd and very very expensive ingredients?
‘Bee Pollen - Low Moisture Whole Granules’
It’s £28 to get in the UK.
Yet another recipe out of reach for most of us 🤷‍♀️

Debbie, there are more than 1000 recipes on my blog, all for free with no advertising. The vast majority use common low-carb ingredients. Very few recipes require "unusual" ingredients. Surely, you understand that we can't please everyone.

I'm not sure where you saw odd ingredients but I've been following Martina's blog for years and most of the recipes she shares use ingredients that are easy to get. Besides how else would you make honey dressing? I think it's actually really clever to use bee pollen.

On amazon it’s £28
Hardly ready available.
I have most of her books too.
Love the Stromboli

I was thinking about another option although I don't know if it's available in the UK. ChocZero have a honey syrup that is low-carb so that might work.
