QUICK Honey Mustard Dressing


Today is PRE-wedding day craziness…. you know what I mean – last minute things to get or do and traveling to the wedding venue with 2 of the 4 dogs.  Then setting up, rehearsal, dinner and then I will crash.  Of course a few glasses of wine will definitely help in the relaxing department.  So I figured I would share one of my favorite recipes from one of my fav bloggers www.comfyinthektichen.com.  Check it out:

I’m all about short cuts, you know I am. But for some reason or the other, I prefer homemade dressings over store bought. When I make baked chicken fingers and certain salads, I whip up this simple yet delicious dressing in a jiffy! My family rants and raves over it and I laugh because it is just so easy to make. In fact, I have never even measured the ingredients when I’ve made it- it is just that simple. I hope your family enjoys this staple recipe!

Adults and kiddos alike love this as a dipping sauce for baked chicken fingers!
