I'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'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 -- three things that happen to be in this very simple dressing.
I've made this three times since coming up with the idea a few days ago. It'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'm part of their "cheese board")
That's the combination you see pictured.
I hope this idea inspires you to think outside of the salad dressing box. It's fun, easy to make and you don't have to be dependent on store bought stuff all the time.
- 1 tbsp spicy brown mustard (15g)
- ½ tbsp maple syrup (10g)
- ½ tbsp apple cider vinegar
- ½ tbsp red wine vinegar
- 1 tsp olive oil
Whisk all ingredients together.
That'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's the nutritional information for the dressing. Note: If you skip the oil it shaves off 40 calories and all the fat. It's not bad that way but the teaspoon of oil makes it much more dressing like.
