Homemade Balsamic-Basil Dijonette

You’ve chopped, sliced, diced and assembled a stunning fresh salad. So why top it with factory-made dressing that sat in a plastic bottle on a store shelf for weeks – maybe months –before landing in your pantry? With a few simple ingredients — including organic mustard, freshly squeezed lemon juice and chopped basil leaves — you can drizzle on a dijonette that doesn’t contain chemical preservatives or artificial flavoring. Clean eating really is this easy!
