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!
