Tomato salad is amplified with the addition of mozzarella, avocado and… MUSTARD! All my foodie friends know about my obsession with salt, well, I also have an obsession with mustard. I’d call it my secret weapon, but it really isn’t that secret.

Regardless of the season, you’ll always find “yellow” in my fridge. During the hot summer months, French’s® Classic Yellow Mustard is used in nearly every meal.

Not just for hamburgers and hot dogs, yellow mustard can be used to punch up sauces, dressings, marinades and more.

 

French’s® Classic Yellow Mustard is made with better-for-you ingredients so you can feel good about using its smooth, tangy flavor for everyday dishes, especially summer dishes!

All your friends and family will rave over your entertaining gravitas. Don’t worry, you can tell them the secret to your zesty dishes. It’s French’s®.

 

In addition to mustard and BBQs,  sweet ripe tomatoes also embody the summer months. I live in a city and small container gardens aren’t large enough to produce the volume of tomatoes I tend to go through.

I have to smell the sweet scent of summer tomatoes at the farmer’s market. I buy a giant bag of topsy, curvy, misshapen and multicolored heirloom tomatoes every week.

 

And every week I make some variation of tomato salad. For my Mustard Bacon dressing, tomatoes with ripe avocado, juicy mozzarella balls and fragrant basil pair perfectly. Complimentary flavors for any summer BBQ or party, especially 4th of July!
