Who buys bottled salad dressing anymore? I rarely do- maybe a bottle of ranch or blue cheese for a batch of wings, but generally speaking, I concoct my own salad toppers like Dijon Lime Salad dressing.
Dijon Lime Salad Dressing is an easy homemade salad dressing with citrus flavors and tangy Dijon mustard. Use on your favorite salad, as a marinade or on grilled or roasted vegetables.
I personally like the bitter flavors on similarly bitter lettuce, like frisee or radicchio, with a little bit of sweet like cranberry or candied nuts. But really, Dijon Lime Salad Dressing tastes fabulous on anything from salad to grilled veggies.
Dijon Lime Salad Dressing can also be used as a marinade for chicken, seafood or beef. For chicken or beef I recommend marinating for 3-4 hours. For seafood you’ll probably only need an hour or so to impart the same amount of flavor.
Homemade salad dressings are fabulous to make in bulk and then store in an airtight container or salad dressing container. They stay fresh in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks. And if you are like me and just eyeball the recipe, you’ll never get the same salad dressing twice, making sure you never get bored.
