Tuna Salad with Honey Mustard Vinaigrette

I've tried countless numbers of salad recipes over the past two years, because I seem to keep making salad for lunch. It's the easiest option when there's not always access to a microwave, and though it's not the nicest thing to have in the middle of winter, the recent warm weather in Sydney has been perfect for salad so I thought I'd quickly share with you one of my favourite salad dressing recipes.

I like to buy a bag of green leaves at the beginning of the week and usually tend to throw in whatever else is in the fridge for my salads and bring a different dressing each day to keep things interesting. This honey mustard vinaigrette is my go to when I don't have much time because it's so easy to make. A bit of mustard, honey, vinegar and olive oil is all you need- shake it up and you've got yourself a pretty tasty and refreshing salad dressing!

I think it goes well with a little sweetness in the salad, so I've put sultanas and apple in my salad as well but the dressing will go well with any salad mix really.

I too love to make my own salad dressings I find mayonnaise far to rich and it can drown a salad. This dressing sounds perfect :D
