This is an excellent vinaigrette for just about anything!!! I cooked some carrots and broccoli, let them come to room temp (made these a long time before dinner) then served with the vinaigrette over them. Excellent way to "do ahead" some of the dinner. Glad you posted this jonesies.

This is excellent! The mustard vinaigrette goes very well with the broccoli, and I've tried it on a few other veggies with great results too. Thanks!

This was so good! I loved how easy it was to put together, and it was delicious. I used Dijon mustard instead and it turned out great. Thank you!
