Healthy, yummy Dijon dressing
My newest favorite is one we had for lunch today. It's a simple Dijon dressing that is a healthy choice for a lovely salad. I found this recipe online somewhere, but I've change it slightly:
3 tbsp of Dijon mustard (any kind)
1 tbsp olive oil
1/4 c water
2 tsp lemon juice (i wish I had fresh lemons, but today we were out)
2 dashes of garlic powder
salt & pepper to taste
Mix ingredients in a leftover jar or lidded cup and just shake shake shake! You can adjust the salt or acid after tasting if you'd like.
Today my husband made a lovely salad with greens, mushrooms, tomatoes and rotisserie chicken. I wish I had taken a photo of that too, but I ate it too fast. :)
This dressing was great on it! It is much healthier than some other options because it has very little oil, no cheese, and no milk or cream. You get a nice 'bite' from the Dijon and even my friend who doesn't care for mustard likes this dressing! It's a nice break from the oil and vinegar I usually put on my salads, and it's a little more interesting! I hope you'll try it!
