I used Bragg Apple Cider Vinegar and organic ground mustard. To my surprise, it was very spicy. I will likely cut the mustard amount in half next time.

Can someone tell me if we are supposed to use powdered mustard? If so it turned out horrible this way. I am wondering if anyone can tell me how they made it so I know what went wrong.

Katie- I haven’t made this yet but I believe they are referring to the prepared stone ground mustard not powdered ground mustard.

Mine turned out extremely too mustardy! I don’t understand if this recipe means to use this much powdered mustard or if I used the wrong ingredient….

Taste so so good. I used regular mustard & ground some toasted mustard seeds up.

This was great (and super easy!)! I’d compare it to a honey-mustard. I really enjoyed this dressing and will make it again. Next time I’ll probably triple or quadruple the recipe and then store it in a mason jar to use over the next 3-4 days (I eat huge salads, so I use a lot of dressing, LOL!).

I didn’t have date paste (and didn’t have time to make it), so I just used 5 pitted dates (not medjool, which are large dates) and blended until all was smooth (I do have a high-powered blender for the dates).

EDIT: I just made this again! I listened to an old timey 1937 radio clip today that kept advertising Miracle Wip salad dressing, haha, and I decided a little mayo texture/flavor would be great with the particular salad I was having tonight!

To do this, simply add 1/2 cup coconut cream. If doubling the recipe, you’ll just use one can of coconut milk, and stop pouring once you get to the coconut water part at the bottom. It gives a great, mayo-like consistency when all blended up.

When doubled, with the coconut cream added, it makes about 1 quart of dressing.

You could probably use almond or soy milk as well, and perhaps a tablespoon or two of cashew butter to make it a little thicker.

I’m so thankful and happy to have found this great recipe from FOK! Thanks, FOK Team!! Have fun cooking everyone! 🙂

Can you recommend any particular brands of unsweetened applesauce that you can buy in the UK please – and which shop? Seems hard to get hold of – much more of an American type product but so useful as I see it popping up all over the place in healthy recipes

That stinks, Helen! I hope you were able to find an easy applesauce recipe perhaps? This is a great dressing! If you make a bunch at once, it would worth it for sure!
