Why You’ll Love Honey Mustard Vinaigrette with Avocado Oil
The most important part of any salad is the dressing. A good one adds flavor and spice to a bowl of otherwise bland greens, but still keeps your meal healthy by avoiding packing on the calories and unnecessary fillers. Primal Kitchen Honey Mustard Vinaigrette with Avocado Oil is the best of both worlds with tangy flair that pumps up the taste of your salad and is also packed with added nutritional value.
Nutritional value of Primal Kitchen vinaigrette
This tasty honey mustard vinaigrette doesn’t contain any sugar, soy, or canola. Instead, it’s made with nutrient-packed, organic ingredients including avocado oil, apple cider vinegar, filtered water, raw honey, stone ground mustard, lemon juice concentrate, and a dash of sea salt.
Each serving contains 10 grams of fat, only three grams of carbohydrates, two grams of sugar, and 180 milligrams of sodium, making it a healthy choice to dress up a traditional house salad, cobb salad, or Southwest bowls. You can even try it as a marinade for chicken or salmon.
Benefits of avocado oil
Vinaigrette dressing is one of the healthiest options at the salad bar, because it’s usually free of dairy or cream and made with heart-boosting oils. In particular, Primal Kitchen’s honey mustard vinaigrette is made with oil from avocados, a potent superfood that is full of important vitamins and minerals, including:
- Potassium — Bananas are the poster children for potassium, but did you know avocados have even more of the mineral? Eating high amounts helps to control blood pressure and ease digestive disorders.
- Lutein — Many refer to it as the “eye vitamin.” It acts as a natural filter for the eye, protecting tissues from the damages of sunlight, which can help preserve sight and also prevent macular degeneration and cataracts.
- Folate — This super potent B vitamin is essential during pregnancy. It has an important role in cell growth and helps to prevent complications and birth defects. It’s also given to patients with anemia.
- B vitamins — The whole gang is here from B6 to B12, which have hands in helping with digestion and energy production as well as fighting off infection and boosting brain power.
- Monounsaturated fats — Or, the good kind of fats that can help lower cholesterol and keep insulin levels at bay, which makes them important for diabetics. Because avocados have fat, they also enable your body to better absorb fat-soluble vitamins like A, D, E, and K.
- Fiber – This natural plant substance helps keep you “regular” and has a role in weight loss since it keeps you fuller for longer periods of time. It’s also been known to reduce blood sugar spikes and decrease the potential for many diseases. And avocados are full of it—about 7 percent of the fruit is pure fiber.
Benefits of vinegar
The concentration of vinegar in this healthy dressing also has proven health effects, including:
- Normalizing blood pressure. Studies have found that vinegar can reduce the hardening of arteries, also known as a condition called atherosclerosis. Because of this, it’s effective in lowering blood pressure levels for those that regularly consume it.
- Stabilizing cholesterol levels. Vinegar contains polyphenois, which effectively lowers cholesterol levels. That’s because polyphenois limits the ability of LDL cholesterol to oxidize, reducing the amount of damage it can cause to the cells of the body.
- Maintaining blood sugar levels. Vinegar has a low glycemic index value, which means that blood sugar levels won't be negatively impacted and there won’t be a sugar high crash after consuming it.
The importance of low calorie dressings
Many people forget to account for the caloric value of sauces and dressings as part of their daily intake. Some salad dressings can have up to 200 calories per serving—and if you like a hearty topping, that number can really add up. In comparison, Primal Kitchen Honey Mustard Vinaigrette with Avocado Oil contains only 100 calories per serving, which amounts to a 50 percent reduction in caloric intake over other, more saturated options like ranch and Caesar.
Bottles of salad dressing will always tell you the serving size, which is usually about two tablespoons. You can always measure the amount, too, before spreading over lettuce and veggies. One of the great things about vinaigrette is that it has a stronger flavor profile—you might be surprised to find how even a little bit can go a long way.

Best Dressing ever
These Primal Kitchen dressings are THE BEST. Really delicious, so glad we discovered them!
Delicious honey mustard
An amazing tasting honey mustard dressing with ingredients that I feel good about consuming!
- Stephanie R
This is the best salad dressing I have found that is acceptable on the GAPS eating plan. When vinegar is not enough, this is perfect. The flavor is quite good, as it is not overly sweet.
It's great to have a salad dressing that tastes great and doesn't have any nasty fillers. Made with avocado oil, this doesn't solidify in the fridge. Goes well with many different salad varieties. My unsuspecting family and friends who eat much more 'mainstream' choose it as well!
This is the Best salad dressing and garnish-ever!
I love this product.It is a product I use on so many things like chicken,as a condiment on corn.I just LOVE it!!!!!!
Our favorite dressing
This is my favorite dressing. Has a great taste!
- Melanie H
This is a wonderful dressing, with the right balance of sweet and sour. You'll love it!
Tasty and light!
This dressing is so so good! It is balanced, simple and tasty!
Great ingredients! Very good on lots of different types of salads.
This is so good! Great on a sandwich, salad, anything! I am so happy to have found this!
Honey mustard vinagerett with avocado oil
I love this dressing I dip bread in it,I buy salad kits and use this dressing in place of any other.verry healthy.
- Kasandra campbell
Can I give more than 5 stars??
I love love love this stuff!!
Love it even though I don't think it tastes like honey mustard
I love this salad dressing, it's my standard now. I don't think it resembles honey mustard though. I pick up on the sweetness from the honey but it takes and has the consistency of a vinaigrette vs. traditional honey mustard (it is not creamy). Regardless of that, I love it.
I usually make my own salad dressing because I have so many food allergies and issues (following Paleo AIP); however, since reintroducing mustard seed, I decided to give this a try. So delicious!! It's my favorite.
Love this dressing. Used it on a green bean salad. Quick and easy and full of flavor!
This is a good quality dressing. The flavor is light.
Just the right blend
Light and flavorful, this honey mustard vinaigrette is just right for adding a little kick to my salads. I'm not normally a vinaigrette fan but this just moved to the top of my list for salad dressing.
I am picky about salad dressing and this is quite possibly my new favorite. I make salad with chicken, avocado, tomato, carrot, radish and sunflower seeds; this dressing pairs perfectly with it and I can eat it pretty much every day for lunch and not get tired of it. Highly recommended!
I really like this salad dressing! Needs to be in a larger bottle! This size of bottle was gone in a few days.
This dressing is delicious, buying a bunch more. So convenient to have on hand.
Love, love, love this dressing! So clean healthy and yummy on spinach!
This is by far the most delicious healthy dressing I have tasted
I would recommend this dressing to anyone. Paleo friendly but can be enjoyed by everyone.
Great on grilled chicken!
Great tasting on salads! Fantastic marinade for chicken!
Love this flavor. A tablespoon goes a long way on a salad. I recently joined Weight Watchers and its only 2pts. Great product
Better than expected.
- Barbara Hendricks
This is a very healthy and tasty dressing. Try it on and avocado with a pinch of sea salt.
Honey Mustard Vinaigrette with Avocado Oil
Great dressing. Love that it's made with avocado oil.
I love this dressing, very flavorful
- Mary Beth
This dressing is soooo good that I ran out. It usually takes me a while to get through a bottle, but I kept adding it to everything. only slightly sweet, as it should be.
Love this one!
After trying the Greek Vinaigrette with Avocado Oil, I wasn't sure I wanted to try this one, but gave it a shot anyway. Glad I did. I really like the flavor of this salad dressing. Not nearly as vinegary as the other. Hope it wasn't a fluke, because I plan to buy more of this flavor.
I love this on my salads, it has a wonderful flavor, plus the good fat of Avocado Oil.
don't like it
This is too much vinegar for me. Not anything like a true honey mustard dressing. I tried several times to use it but it never grew on me. Almost my whole bottle went to waste. I won't be ordering this again.
If you like honey mustard you will like this, is so delicious on our salads, yummy flavor and healthy!
Don't need to say more! Love its tanginess!
- Jeanette A.
This is my husbands favorite dressing. I'm not a mustard fan but it isn't too strong. Paleo is what matters most.
This dressing is absolutely fantastic! Just ordered a bunch more to have on hand.
This is a great dressing. Fresh taste with no artificial flavors. It is also great on chicken salad as a mayo replacement. Gives it a nice punch.
This dressing is good, but had way too much vinegar for me. I'll probably make my own once I use it up but still a good product.
It's not that surprising that with Mark Sisson behind this product, it's not very sweet. But I do wish it wasn't so vinegar-y. So tangy, it made me cough. Wish there was more avocado oil to balance all that vinegar. The honey mustard flavor is very faint as well. But it is a little more liquid straight from the fridge than their competitor's olive oil based dressing, so that's a plus because you don't have to plan ahead as much before eating.
Honey Mustard Vinaigrette
I LOVE THIS SALAD DRESSING!! It tastes so fresh and home made!!!! It makes eating a lot leafy greens really easy because it's so tasty!
Better than expected. Not really a fan of vinaigrette but this a good alternative to store bought dressing.
Honey Mustard Vinaigrette w Avo oil
- Nancy Brooks
Loving this dressing. It goes perfectly with so many different combos. Went thru a bottle in about a week!!
Love this dressing
On a salad, this dressing has a very bright, clean taste. It tastes like a salad dressing I make, only it's so much quicker! Good stuff.
VERY tasty. We have been using just olive oil and lemons for a very long time. Nice to have a tasty alternative.
Pleasantly surprised. Had this with Salmon and goat cheese over arugula and it was delicious. Give it a try. I'm coming back for more.
I love ranch dressing. So trying to find a dressing that was paleo and would be a good substitute was difficult. I tried the Greek dressing and wasn't a fan so I tried the honey mustard and fell in love with it. I have ordered 5 of them just have to back up.
It's hard to find a good dressing that is both tasty and free of soy or canola oil. The taste is fantastic and I don't feel bad eating this. A great addition to any salad, on fish or to flavor up chicken.
It is not easy to find a pure salad dressing that is completely free of additives and preservatives. Most have Natural flavor/flavorings, which is really MSG.
Love it, am reordering, so I won't run out! Great on all kinds of salads. Love to put a little bar-b-qued beef, peppers, and other veggies in a salad for dinner, and this is awesome.
We like it on salads, sandwiches, and just about everything. It's flavor is more mustard than honey but it's yummy.
Not so much
I thought I would love it, but not so much. I tried adding a few ingredients. I'll keep trying until I figure it out.
Love having clean dressings on hand when I don't feel like making my own. It's also whole30 compliant and doesn't leave me with a stomach ache like other dressings that are loaded with sugar tend to do.
Delicious-wish I had more!!
Love, love, love this dressing I just wish it came in a bigger bottle!! It is a little on the small side and you can go through it very quickly.
Oh my gosh!
I don't like vinaigrette dressings but this one is OUTSTANDING!! DELICIOUS!! I will be ordering more.
I received this dressing from Thrive Market as a free "add-on" to one of my orders and I am so glad. I love this salad dressing. I usually choose a balsamic vinegar, but this one is light yet creamy. I have ordered several bottles since my free one.
Finally, a Primal Dressing!
I love this dressing and a little bit goes a long way. It has helped me stick to eating my big "a" salad for lunch everyday.
This dressing is delicious and I'm not even that crazy about honey mustard dressing! Plus, the ingredients are super simple and healthy – you can pronounce them all!
My new go to
I love this dressing it's light and tangy and the best part is the ingredients. Iam on a limited food diet so finding things I like and can eat is difficult. This won't disappoint.
I've been looking forever for a substitute for my Ranch Dressing addiction. And while you can't dip your pizza in this stuff, it's the best healthy dressing I've ever had on my salad. This one is way better than the Greek dressing flavor. I'm not usually a honey mustard fan, but this stuff is great!
Coming back for more.....
Received this as a freebie with an order. WOW!!!!!! Not only do I now crave the taste (and, I am very finicky...), but the ingredients, ALL of them, are what I want and need. Until now, could find/use only 1 other that I adore, but I am so glad to have this one, too.... which I like even better. Thank you THRIVE for turning me on to this!!!!!! (I am back for more.)
Primal honey Mustard
Excellent dressing without nasty ingredients.. Thank you Primal Kitchen
Great Ingredients - could have more flavor
I love this dressing. I am sensitive to soy, dairy, and gluten, so it is nice to have a pre-made dressing without those ingredients. I wish there were more options, but I enjoy both this and the Greek. I think this one could have a little more kick, maybe more spices and vinegar. Other than that, very happy with it. Also, almost all other dressings on thrive have soy/canola/sunflower oil. I am glad to have an option without these.
Go this as a free gift with my last order. Very good, will order again!
Marinade for my chicken thighs! Awesome!!!
- Jamie Ellis
Love the honey mustard dressing!! Thank you for carrying all my favorite primal foods!!!
This is good salad dressing
Best Honey Mustard Dressing Around
I have tried every honey mustard dressing out there. This is definitely NUMERO UNO.
This dressing is so good I could eat it on anything!
I have long been looking for a good, Paleo salad dressing - and am so happy I have found this. In the past, I have stood in the store looking at bottle after bottle of dressings made with corn oil and sugar and other not so lovely ingredients. So imagine my delight when I saw this option on Thrive Market.
I love this dressing, it is tasty with great flavor - not too strong, nor too light. Perfect!
I first got this dressing as a free add on with an order. However, when it arrived, I was blown away! This stuff is delicious. It was practically used up within a week. Great on veggie and shrimp salads. I have since ordered more.
On other note, I LOVE how it only has clean, healthy ingredients. Most organic dressings at the store still slip in a few random WTF is that items. Not this! Very clean.
Delicious! Best dressing I've ever had, will totally buy this again
- Kelly Ely
Great flavor and guilt free!
If you're expecting the normal consistency of honey mustard, this dressing is much thinner, but the flavor is there! Really good stuff. Clean ingredients means guilt free eating! Highly recommend all Primal Kitchen products.
- Megan B
I received this as a free sample along with my order and then purchased five additional bottles. Just used it on a salad for a party at work and everyone wanted to know the name of the dressing.
Clean ingredients and awesome flavor! Received this as a free gift with my order and will definitely be purchasing again.
Our family is happy with the ingredients and flavor of this dressing. A little goes a long way as it has a bold taste. Definitely recommend!
Oh. My. Goodness. I received this as a free gift with purchase and am now TOTALLY HOOKED. This stuff is incredibly good--and what's even better...it's good *for* you! Like, it's so good I'm tempted to drink it straight from the bottle. Can't wait to try Primal Kitchen's mayo!
Where has this been my whole life
I am in LOVE with this dressing. My favorite way to use it is on Green Lentil Penne by Tolerant (you could use it on any pasta) for pasta salad. To die for!
This dressing is delicious! I got it as a free gift with my order and will be purchasing it in the future!
I am hesitant when it comes to bottled salad dressing, because they can taste a little plastic-y and fake, but this one is really good! It actually tastes home made, like a vinaigrette I would make. I am going to check out their greek dressing.
This dressing has a great flavor that is fresh and almost as good as my homemade. Highly recommend this for a salad or marinade.
