Mustard Vinaigrette

Like most dressings, Mustard Vinaigrette is simple and easy to make.  It’s the same proportions and technique as Basic Vinaigrette Dressing; you just add some Dijon mustard.  You can easily double or halve the recipe.  Use this on green salads, as a sauce for chicken, fish or pork, or as a dressing for a grain salad.

Steamed Vegetable Salad with Lemon Sesame Dressing

This steamed vegetable salad is a light, refreshing, and healthy meal.  Plus, it’s a quick and easy week night dinner.  If you cannot find different colored carrots, of course you can use all orange.  I just like the variety of colors.  Serve warm or cold, with a side of wheat berries, quinoa or slice roast chicken.  Leftovers make a great lunch the next day.
