  • Author: Louisiana Woman
  • Total Time: 5 minutes
  • Yield: 3/4 cup 1x


A sweet and hot dressing, full-flavored with Creole mustard, cane syrup, and hot sauce tha’s great for fresh salads, grilled greens, marinades, and much more.



1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil

3 tablespoons balsamic vinegar

1 tablespoon + 1 teaspoon Creole mustard 

1 tablespoon + 1 teaspoon pure can syrup

1 teaspoon hot sauce, or more

1 large or 2 small garlic pods, pressed

1/4 teaspoon salt


Place all of the ingredients into a pint or half pint glass jar with a screw-top lid.

Screw the lid on tightly and shake the jar vigorously until all of the ingredients are mixed well together.

Ready to use or store in the refrigerator for later.



Use on fresh fruit and vegetable salads, as a marinade, in a sandwich as a condiment, in a potato salad instead of mayonnaise, tossed with pasta, or as a steak sauce.

Dijon or spicy mustard may be used in place of the Creole Mustard, but only if necessary.
