ode to mustard

Oh, mustard. How does anyone cook without you? Quiche, lamb, and chicken are better for having met you. You perk up a plate of cheese and crackers (Dijon!), and complement sausage (stone-ground!). Some weird people even eat you out of the jar. With a spoon. Not that I know any such crazies.

And you're a star in salad dressings . . . like this addictive gem, perfect over a bowl of assertive greens.


Honey Mustard Dressing
(original recipe from This Week for Dinner) 

1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup mild honey
2 tablespoons yellow mustard
2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar

Whisk, chill, pour.

p.s. I did not realize how often I used mustard until I searched it on this blog. Wow. I should start bulk-ordering it.

  1. Hi Rebekah,

    We're having our inaugural Eat Make Grow Blog Hop. We are looking for folks to link up who want to share what they have been eating with their families, growing in their gardens or making with all their creative impulses. If you're interested, I hope you'll hop on over and link up a couple of your posts. It's a way for you to grow your readership and find other like minded mamas.

    Hope to see you there,
