Honey Mustard Vinaigrette Marinade & Salad

December 19, 2019Brianna

Raise your hand if you love a good salad with a ton of veggie toppings?! I love a good salad. Tons of different flavors and textures in the same bite. I love that the dressing and marinade for the chicken and salad are the same thing making this even easier. Homemade salad dressings are honestly very easy to make. I haven’t bought a store-bought salad dressing in years because they just don’t live up to the taste of a simple homemade one. They are also way better for you too.



Honey Mustard Vinaigrette Marinade & Salad

The most delicious and tangy honey mustard dressing and marinade make a salad with wonderful taste and texture!

  • Prep Time: 10 minutes active, plus marinade time
  • Cook Time: 20 minutes
  • Total Time: 30 minutes
  • Yield: Enough dressing for about 6-7 salads




½ cup honey

5 tablespoons whole grain mustard

3 tablespoons Dijon mustard

3 tablespoons olive oil

2 ½ tablespoons apple cider vinegar

Pinch of garlic powder

46 Chicken breasts, depending on how big and how many people you want to feed.

For Salad-

Mixed greens


Chopped cucumbers

Cherry tomatoes, sliced in half

Sunflower seeds

Sliced avocado

Crumbled bacon



Whisk together all ingredients till well incorporated. Add ½ a cup of dressing to a Ziploc bag and put 4-6 chicken breasts in to marinate at least 30 minutes up to as long as you’d like. I try to let it marinade at least 2 hours but it still tastes great if you don’t have that much time. Keep the rest of the dressing in the fridge, covered, till ready to use.


I prefer to grill this chicken. If you bake it, make sure to line a baking sheet with foil and lightly spray so it doesn’t stick. Bake at 350 for about 20-25 minutes, depending on thickness of chicken breasts.



Put a handful of greens in a bowl and top with chicken and other desired toppings. My favorites for this salad are corn, cucumbers, tomatoes, avocado, bacon, and sunflower seeds. Spoon dressing over top of salad and enjoy.


I think I enjoy this salad just as much as leftovers as I do freshly made!
