Spicy Dijon Vinaigrette

Break the bland salad habit with a dressing that makes your mouth (and your eyes!) water. You’ll whisk together organic extra virgin olive oil, apple cider vinegar and Dijon mustard for a zesty vinaigrette base, then add garlic and herbs for fresh flavor. A dash of chipotle or ancho chile is where the kick comes in””just a bit is all that’s needed for a love-it, want-more burn! Double or triple the batch and keep this dressing in a sealed jar in your fridge for up to a week.

Use low-sodium Dijon mustard for a heart-healthy dressing!
