For someone, who doesn’t eat hardly any meat, I sure am addicted to Chick-fil-a sauce. I crave it. I think I could drink it. There is nothing better than hot waffle-cut french fries dipped in Chick-fil-a sauce. If you examine the taste of Chick-fil-a sauce, it really has two elements. Some sort of honey mustard flavor and smoky bbq flavor. But the ingredient list on those little packs of sauce are scary! I knew that I could create a simple version with more wholesome ingredients.
So I mixed together some mayo, two kinds of mustard, some honey, salt, lemon juice, and a drop of hickory liquid smoke. Perfection. I got right to throwing some potato wedges in the oven.
A few days later, I was about to eat a salad and could not think of a single salad dressing that sounded good in that moment. I found myself wishing I could just put some Chick-fil-a sauce on my salad. I have been in a serious salad slump, mostly because I have fallen out of favor with so many dressings. So I set to it and created a totally healthy, easy Chick-fil-a sauce inspired dressing. Something more pour-able and with no mayo. Completely vegan and gluten-free. It is a dressing I feel great about putting on my salad. With this salad dressing, I think I am finally over my salad slump!
