Herb Mustard Vinaigrette

After all those delicious holiday cookies and treats, I’m ready for a bit of lighter fare. I’m thinking salads. Lots and lots of loaded salads are in my near future. And with a fabulous loaded salad, you’ve got to have an awesome dressing. The dressing is pretty much the most important part. It gets slathered all over the entire thing, so it’s gotta be kinda perfect.

This Herb Mustard Vinaigrette is the ultimate salad dressing. My future mother-in-law whipped up a salad for us with this dressing and I pretty much fell in love. I tweaked a few things here and there and the result is delicious. You can throw this on any kind of salad, with or without protein, and it’s going to be great!

Okay, here’s how to do it.

Start with an empty jar with a lid. I’m all about easy cleanup, so the jar is just perfect. You add all the ingredients, shake it up, and then store it in the fridge. No cleanup at all!

And a healthy pour of olive oil.

Top it off with some freshly grated Parmesan cheese.

Tightly put the top back on. This is key. Otherwise you’ll have a giant mess.

Shake, shake, shake. And shake, shake, shake some more!

Then use it for all of your salads!

This dressing keeps well in the fridge for about a week. Just let it come to room temperature about 30 minutes before using it!

It’s particularly delicious on spinach salads with chicken. Or steak. Ok, it’s just awesome. You have to give it a try!

I’m sad that there’s no link to add this one to my recipe box! Why can I print it but not bookmark it? I definitely want to be able to find it again…

I made salad dressing last night, Balsamic Vinaigrette. Wish I’d read your tip about making sure the lid is on tight before shaking!!! I got a vinaigrette shower!! All over my face, hair, clothes! Luckily, I still had enough dressing for my salad! haha Making dressing is so simple and tastes so much better than store bought I wonder why I don’t do it more often. I will try your recipe next time! :)
