Check out this simple and delicious salad with homemade honey mustard dressing. The sweet and smoky flavors are the perfect combo.
Sometimes I just crave a good salad, especially in the summer when everything is fresh and in season. There’s something to be said about a simple salad.
Making everything fresh doesn’t have to take a lot of time. I love this simple sweet and smoky salad. The best part is that the homemade honey mustard dressing is easy to whip together.
The honey gives it a sweetness while the bacon adds some smoky flavor. And avocados are my favorite thing to add to just about any dish! 😉
