Recipe: Spicy Brown Mustard Vinaigrette

I love mustard… on sandwiches, in dressings and sauces… it just adds a really pleasant dimension to food.

There are many Mustard Vinaigrette recipes out there… some even have rave reviews… I’ve tried my share… I think most overdo the oil or the vinegar isn’t just right… this recipe is a basic mustard vinaigrette… nothing fancy or difficult.. no exotic ingredients…it worked perfectly with my Steak and Herb Roasted Potato Salad.


Use a good spicy brown mustard.. this is not the place to cheap out… likewise with the olive oil.

This quick and easy recipe goes together quickly … just refrigerate until well chilled.

I've got a fairly good collection of homemade vinaigrettes and this one is headed immediately to the collection. And what a great looking salad.

The only vinegar I have is apple cider. Would this work as a substitute for the red wine vinegar?

Linda said...

Hi Cameron,

I would answer... yes.... apple flavor does go well with mustard... in fact.. I may try it myself in this recipe the next time I make it! I love to experiment.

Let me know your thoughts if you try it.

Thanks for stopping by.
