Honky Tonk Sweet and Spicy Salad Dressing

In a big move to start being healthier and EATING healthier, I got the brilliant idea to start making my own salad dressing.  Unbeknownst to me, a lot of people make their own salad dressing!!! The good thing about that is I was able to get a lot of great suggestions from friends, family and also on my go-to favorite Food  That was where I found this gem from a restaurant in Chicago called Honky Tonk BBQ.  It's a really down-home, southern style dressing that is great for a salad as a side but also salad as a meal.  I tried it out with grilled chicken and mixed greens and was blown away by how good it is.  Try it out for yourself!!

Honky Tonk Sweet and Spicy Salad Dressing
1/4 c. sugar
1/8 c. water
3/4 c. olive oil
1/4 c. dijon mustard (more or less depending on preference)
1/8 c. Sriracha sauce (more or less depending on preference)
1/2 tbsp salt
1/2 tsp dried ground ginger
1/2 tsp celery seed
1/4 tsp pepper

Blend all ingredients in blender.  Adjust seasoning to taste.

I'm going to try this on a chicken wrap tomorrow and continue experimenting!!!

Good eatin',
