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.

Spinach Salad with Avocado, Walnuts and Parsley with Lemon Vinaigrette Dressing

This salad is easy, tasty, and healthy.  The avocado and walnuts have good heart healthy fats.  And everyone knows spinach is good for you.  The bright acidity of the lemon vinaigrette complements the rich, buttery avocado.  Plus, the lemon juice helps to delay the browning process of the avocado a bit.

Bibb Lettuce Salad

I came across this salad in Thomas Keller’s Bouchon cookbook and had to try it out.  It looked beautiful and also didn’t seem that difficult to make.  Yes, it takes a tad bit of time to assemble, but worth the effort (and really doesn’t take that long).  The gorgeous floral shape is stunning, making it great for serving company (imagine serving each person their own.)  Being at home with just my husband I ate each leaf with my fingers.  It was like a sweet, tangy, crunchy, delicious snack, but substantial enough for a meal.  I’m hooked on this salad.
