mustard (Dijon or whole-grain are my favorites)
freshly ground black pepper
your favorite spices (such as black lime, sumac, garlic powder, ground ginger, and smoked paprika)
Your favorite salad greens, chopped vegetables, nuts, cheeses, and grains
In This Recipe
Add all ingredients into a glass or small bowl. Use a fork to vigorously mix until ingredients are well incorporated and the mixture is a uniform, creamy consistency. (Another option is to put all the ingredients in a jar with a lid and shake it like a Polaroid.)
Tip: Dress the salad right before serving and give it a light toss with tongs. If you have heavier components in your salad (tomatoes, nuts, cheese, grains), then dress the greens first, toss, then add the toppings. Otherwise, all of those toppings will end up at the bottom of your bowl.
