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.

Radish Green Pepita Pesto

Here’s a slight twist on traditional Italian Genovese Pesto.  Radish greens are used in place of basil.  Pepitas (pumpkin seeds) are used in place of pinenuts.  This is my favorite way to use radish greens.  I have sautéed them in the past, but they tend to be a tad bitter.  Making a pesto helps to balance out the bitterness.  I’ve also made it with and without Parmigiano-Reggiano.  It works well either way.  You just may need a bit more salt if you leave out the cheese.

Buttermilk Blue Cheese Dressing

Zesty, yet earthy this creamy classic dressing is great as a salad dressing, sandwich spread, crudité dip, or chicken wing dip.  Using yogurt instead of mayonnaise will add even more tang to this dressing.  Making your own allows you to experiment with various types of blue cheese.
