Does Mustard Go In a Vinaigrette?

I love using mustard in a vinaigrette for some acidity, the many taste layers of mustard add much more to a vinaigrette than vinegar does. Adding mustard to a vinaigrette also thickens it up and makes it stick to the greens, fruit, and cheese making sure every bite has dressing.

Karlynn’s Quick Tip

Prepare the dressing ahead of time keeping it in the fridge in a small glass jar. Shake and pour over the salads when you are ready to eat!

Karlynn’s Salad Dressings

If you love a simple vinaigrette why not try Karlynn’s Herb Vinaigrette? Or try a light Poppyseed Dressing or Homemade Italian Dressing? These are very easy to make and keep in the fridge fresh for your next salad!

What to Eat With This Salad

This salad is the perfect side dish for your main meal to balance out the ham, potatoes, pierogis, and other assorted heavier dishes. I would personally prepare each one in a small salad bowl and serve at the beginning of the meal to whet everyone’s appetite!

Happy Cooking everyone!
