Come along with me as I journal about my latest cooking and gardening adventures. Discover what grows in my zone five garden, and see what new recipes I try from my cookbook collection each week.

As I share recipes and information from my kitchen, I invite readers to comment and share ideas along with me in this blog. I am looking to increase followers to my blog, so that I may learn more about cooking and gardening.

Since moving to Midland, Michigan, I have been reading and researching many cooking journals, cookbooks and collected recipes from the past thirty years. Organizing pictures of gardens I enjoy has also been a joy for me, as I continue to learn about garden design and horticulture.

honey mustard salad dressing

salads are perfect for summer dinners.  they are light and often use fresh vegetables straight from the backyard garden.  one night this week, i tried one of Martha's salad dressings to make this honey mustard chicken salad.  it was superb.

i simply used fresh greens, added some shredded cabbage and shredded carrots to the plate, and then used grilled chicken on the top.  drizzled with this honey mustard dressing, the summer salad was tops !

to make the salad dressing:
in a small bowl, whisk together 2 tablespoons canola mayonnaise, 1 tablespoon yellow mustard, 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard, 1 tablespoon honey, with salt and pepper to taste.  chill before serving over the salad.
