I~ez_rsquo~m on a homemade condiment kick again. Every now and then I try to declare my independence from store-bought salad dressings and BBQ sauces.
I know I~ez_rsquo~ll never NOT use store-bought again, but I like to try and keep my pantry filled with more generic items that can easily be pulled together for multiple uses. Things like mustard, maple syrup and vinegar ~ez_mdash~ three things that happen to be in this very simple dressing.
I~ez_rsquo~ve made this three times since coming up with the idea a few days ago. It~ez_rsquo~s been a great dressing to top a simple salad using whatever leftover protein I had in the fridge and some shredded cheese. My favorite combo so far has been leftover baked ham and horseradish Cheddar.
(Note: Cabot is now sending me samples of cheese as I~ez_rsquo~m part of their ~ez_ldquo~cheese board~ez_rdquo~)
That~ez_rsquo~s the combination you see pictured.
I hope this idea inspires you to think outside of the salad dressing box. It~ez_rsquo~s fun, easy to make and you don~ez_rsquo~t have to be dependent on store bought stuff all the time.
- 1 tbsp spicy brown mustard (15g)
- 1/2 tbsp maple syrup (10g)
- 1/2 tbsp apple cider vinegar
- 1/2 tbsp red wine vinegar
- 1 tsp olive oil
Whisk all ingredients together.
That~ez_rsquo~s it. You have to love simple recipes!
I drizzled it over butter lettuce, grape tomatoes, cubed ham and shredded cheese.
And paired it with a bowl of soup. It was an amazing lunch!
Here~ez_rsquo~s the nutritional information for the dressing. Note: If you skip the oil it shaves off 40 calories and all the fat. It~ez_rsquo~s not bad that way but the teaspoon of oil makes it much more dressing like.

Full Disclosure: Cabot did send me free cheese. Cabot did not compensate me for this post in any other way. All opinions expressed are my own.
