Top 10 Things You Can Make with Honey

Sauces and Salad Dressings

Is there such a thing as a turkey sandwich without honey-mustard sauce? Would summer be the same if honey barbecue sauce had never been invented? No and no. Salad dressing is where honey comes into its own, and sauces are where it thrives.

It's no secret that honey and pork go well together. Need some proof? Try brushing a healthy amount of honey on pork tenderloin before putting it in the oven. Honey is also the key ingredient in many homemade barbecue sauces. Instead of using store-bought barbecue sauce, next time you fire up the grill try stirring a couple spoonfuls of honey together with apple cider vinegar, Worcestershire sauce, mustard and lemon juice for a tangy and sweet sauce. In salad dressing, try adding a few drops of honey to vinaigrette for some added sweetness and to help thicken it up. (Also, your kids will probably be more likely to ask for seconds of salad if there's a touch of honey in the dressing.)
