This super simple mustard dressing is a great place to start when it comes to making the switch to real food. I’ve included some other tips and recipes to keep your salads fresh and fun, too!
Making your own homemade salad dressing is super easy to do and this Mustard Vinaigrette is no exception! Not only do you avoid unwanted additives (including refined sweetener), but the taste is far superior to the store-bought stuff.
Just shake all the ingredients together in a jar and drizzle over your salad, chicken, or fish dishes for a little added flavor. There are so many variations you can create for a delicious addition to your meal.
Tried this last night for dinner and it was amazing! My extremely picky husband has been resistant to switching to real food, but I’m trying little by little. He loved this dressing on his salad.
Ingredients Needed to Make Mustard Vinaigrette
- Olive oil – I recommend finding an organic extra-virgin olive oil.
- White wine vinegar – You could also sub champagne vinegar.
- Mustard – Just your regular yellow mustard will do, or you could use whole-grain or Dijon mustard.
- Salt – Not too much, just a 1/4 teaspoon.
- Garlic – One clove peeled and minced.
- Paprika – Just a pinch is needed.
- Pepper – To taste.
How to Make Easy Mustard Vinaigrette
Simply combine all your ingredients in a jar (or the bottle mentioned below), screw on the top, and shake to mix! The dressing will naturally separate over time, so you may need to shake it up more if you’re having seconds. While not necessary, if you emulsify it with an immersion blender or even a milk frother (like you’d use for a coffee), the dressing will take much longer to separate.
The Best Salad Dressing Invention Ever!
This bottle may not look like much, but detailed on the side are 8 different salad dressing recipes in a “fill to here” type fashion. It does call for some refined oils and such, but nothing that can’t easily be substituted for more wholesome ingredients.
What Recipes are Included on the Bottle?
The recipes include Asian, Caesar, French, Greek, Italian, Vinaigrette, Balsamic Vinaigrette, and Honey Mustard—all of which you can make and store in this bottle.
Perfect for Gifts
We’ve had ours for several years now, and we absolutely love it! Many of our family and friends also now have one of these salad dressing bottles because one holiday season I went a little crazy and bought one for just about everybody I know. I just love practical gifts and at less than $12 a pop this one is hard to beat. 🙂
