    I love topping my salads with walnuts and goat cheese, and I always make homemade vinaigrettes. This honey mustard vinaigrette sounds delicious, and the perfect pairing with the goat cheese!

    Overall I really liked this recipe! It is a great consistency and overall good taste and creaminess. I think I may have used the wrong product for the mustard. I used Coleman”s dried mustard. The aftertaste of this cheese sauce is distinctively mustard-y (I really like mustard and this was for a philly cheeze “steak recipe so the flavor is fine.) Should I have used a different mustard product? I did put a little less than two teaspoons because I wasn”t 100% sure I had the right ingredient. I did add a bit more miso, salt, and vinegar after the first taste. I want to make this again and would definitely use this for mac and cheeze but I have to figure out the mustard thing first. Thanks for a great recipe though!

      Yeah you have to use dijon mustard in order for this dressing to work, just get any type of regular dijon mustard from your grocery store and it should be perfect.
