Meet your new favorite healthy and delicious salad dressing recipe. Six ingredients is all it takes to hit this salad dressing home run. Mix it up in minutes. Let your taste buds give it a whirl. And try to tell me it’s not your forever fave!

Shake up some avocado oil, apple cider vinegar, dijon mustard, raw honey (preferably local), minced garlic and sea salt. Then, drizzle this liquid gold on anything you want to kick-up a tangy notch.

Every 28 days, our skin replaces itself. Every 5 months, our liver replaces itself. Every 10 years, our bones replace themselves. Our bodies make fresh replacement cells from the food we eat. We actually are what we eat.


Besides being delicious, this salad dressing is chock full of healthy goodness. Avocado oil is heart-healthy and high in unsaturated fat. It contains vitamin E and helps the body absorb other fat-soluble vitamins. It’s a good source of monounsaturated fat which has been linked to reducing LDL cholesterol and increasing HDL cholesterol. Apple cider vinegar helps kill harmful bacteria and improves heart health. Dijon mustard is high in omega-3 fatty acids. Raw honey is an antioxidant powerhouse. It also contains prebiotics that nourish the good bacteria in the intestines. And garlic is chock full of manganese, vitamin B6, vitamin C, selenium, fiber and antioxidants.

“Food is medicine that changes your metabolism.”

—Dr. Mark Hyman
