Dijon Vinaigrette


This dressing goes with any salad. The Dijon and sweet bite of the agave work wonderfully with delicate greens such as Bibb, red leaf, and Boston lettuces. It’s also delish when drizzled over blanched asparagus. Did you know that mustard seeds contain selenium, which helps to reduce the severity of asthma and arthritis? Score!


  • 0.25 cup Dijon mustard
  • 0.25 cup olive oil or flax oil
  • 3 Tbsp agaves
  • 3 garlic clove, finely minced
  • 0.25 cup sherry vinegar
  • freshly ground black pepper to taste


In a bowl, whisk all ingredients well. Alternative: pour all ingredients into glass jar with sealable lid and shake well.

Tip: Colonel Mustard: Mustard is one of the most versatile condiments. Add a dollop to your favorite marinades for a subtle pop of flavor. Depending on the type of mustard, you may want to add a hint of sweetener to cut the spice.

Note from Chad: Want an even quicker version? Grab your favorite infused vinegar, such as raspberry or fig balsamic, and combine with a few tablespoons of Dijon mustard. Shake in jar or whisk. It's simple, speedy, and spectacular.
