Various home made dressings

For awhile now I’ve been making my own dressings as that ‘gummy’ concoction from a bottle is nearly nauseating. Especially the ‘fat -free’  stuff. Here are a few, basic great tasting alternatives. Remember, only coat the salad. Don’t drown it in dressing.

1 Tbsp Dijon mustard                                               1/2 tsp ground cumin

1 Tbsp sugar                                                              1/4 tsp kosher salt

2 tsp chopped Thyme, Estragon                              1 Tbsp honey
