Mustard Vinaigrette Salad Dressing

A generous spoonful of Dijon mustard makes this vinaigrette creamy and tart. Use the dressing with sturdy salad greens like romaine or with softer lettuces like Bibb lettuce or oak leaf. The dressing is too strong to work with baby salad greens or mesclun. It’s also great with cooked vegetables like beets or broccoli and with grain salads.

Mustard Vinaigrette Salad Dressing

Making a delicious dinner from leftovers just thrills me to no end. My husband grilled a sirloin steak for dinner one night this week.  The leftovers , which would have been enough for one serving, was cut thinly on the bias and set atop vegetables from the garden.

I had my gorgeous dinner salad ready, the only component missing was the dressing. We love steak and chicken grilled with mustard marinades, which made me think ,why not a salad dressing made with mustard? Why not indeed!

Mustard Vinaigrette Salad Dressing made with Dijon Mustard and a few other very simple ingredients, dressed our salads perfectly with wonderful flavor that complemented the meat and the salad beautifully. A very simple grilled steak salad was made extra special by a vinaigrette that took literally minutes to make.  You know what my first thought was?  What would we pay in a restaurant for the same salad with a homemade vinaigrette that I made out of leftovers? I don’t even want to think about it.

Mustard Vinaigrette Salad Dressing would be just as delicious on a salad made with leftover grilled chicken breast.  I’ll be asking my husband to grill extra chicken breast so we can  enjoy this homemade vinaigrette on top of our garden fresh vegetables for as long as they last.  Mustard Vinaigrette Salad Dressing…Enjoy!
