Mike’s Hot Honey has become a go-to ingredient in so many of my favorite meals and recipes. Now with new Mike’s Hot Honey – Extra Hot, I have another way to add that sweet heat to all my favorite foods!
I was a bit skeptical at first, but it really is one of those ‘everything’ condiments… it just makes everything better! You’ll forget all about syrup or hot sauce on your pancakes and eggs at breakfast. Mustard on a sandwich at lunch? Not a chance. And with grilled chicken or pork chops, mmm, so sublime!
And that’s just using it straight out of the bottle.
It also pulls its weight as a must-have ingredient in various sauces, dressings, and lots of different marinades. In fact, one of my all-time favorite dressings is Mike’s Hot Honey Balsamic Vinaigrette. It’s probably one of the easiest and most flavorful vinaigrettes that I have ever tasted. I typically have a batch on hand at all times so that I can throw together a salad in a flash.
I like to drizzle the vinaigrette over some salad greens, tomatoes, cooked chicken and praline pecans. I really would be a happy gal with that salad on my table every day of the week. The sweet, salty and heat flavors combined really just can’t be beat.
Why not grab a few ingredients and you can have this tasty dressing ready in a matter of minutes. Go with either variety of Mike’s Hot Honey that you love, Original or Extra Hot. If you like it hot, I highly recommend using Mike’s Hot Honey – Extra Hot. It gives the vinaigrette the same sweet heat combo with an extra kick.
- 1/2 cup olive oil
- 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar

Founded in 2010 by Mike Kurtz, the brand was born from a desire to create and share the highest quality honey infused with chili peppers. Mike began drizzling his signature hot honey on pizzas at the Brooklyn pizzeria where he worked, and customers started to ask if they could buy bottles to take home.
Mike’s Hot Honey became a word-of-mouth sensation, sparking the creation of a new category of honey. That delicious honey can be found on restaurant menus and retail shelves across the U.S., including Publix!
