Lemony Dijon Mustard Salad Dressing

A simple classic salad dressing becomes slightly creamy from the dijon mustard and fresh lemony taste with some warmth from the mustard and pepper.   


Adding mustard and pepper means you are adding warmth to your salad dressings which helps aid your digestion as raw salads and vegetables are energetically cooling; too many cooling foods altogether can cause sluggish digestion and lower nutrient absorption.  A little warmth goes a low way!

Lemony Dijon Mustard Salad Dressing


WASH lemons, as they are typically sprayed with chemicals. Washing in a bowl of hot soapy water is my approach. Slice a clean lemon in half and squeeze.


ADD all ingredients to a mason jar, salad dressing bottle or bowl.


LID ON shake well or whisk until combined and slightly creamy = emulsification.


TASTE add salt or extra mustard, or lemon juice to your taste.


SERVE with our Simple Crispy Salad.


STORE covered in the fridge. Shake well before serving.

OIL-FREE you can make it oil-free by using apple cider vinegar, rice vinegar or water instead of olive oil; the flavour and consistency will change.


SWAP LEMON JUICE for orange or grapefruit juice or vinegar – use 2 tbsp apple cider or rice or white wine or white balsamic vinegar.
