1/4 cup Dijon Honey Mustard
1/8 tsp. garlic powder
1/8 tsp. salt
1 tbsp. honey
2 tbsp. cider vinegar
about 1/2 cup olive oil
I use a salad dressing mixer for this. Mix first 5 ingredients. Then while rapidly mixing start adding a stream of olive oil gradually, so it will emulsify.
Toppings to consider: Toasted almond slices, grated/crumbled Gorgonzola, hard-boiled egg.
Toast sliced almonds: Just toss sliced almonds in a saute pan over medium high heat until they begin to brown, then sprinkle over finished salad.
