1 almost-empty bottle or jar of mustard (type is up to you!)
+ 2 parts acid (vinegar or lemon juice)
+ 1 part olive oil
+ herbs/spices (optional)
+ pinch of sweetness (also optional, but honey, sugar, fruit juice all work well)
Give it a shake and pour it on!
Here are a few of my favorite varieties:
- Dijon mustard with lemon juice + olive oil + garlic + honey poured over herb salad;
- Brown mustard with apple cider vinegar + olive oil + celery seed + pinch of sugar (great for cole slaw!)
- Dijon mustard with balsamic vinegar + olive oil + chopped fresh basil on spinach and strawberry salad.
