Creole Mustard Vinaigrette

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by Acerast

This tasty vinaigrette comes from the Cookin' Cajun Cooking School in New Orleans. We love it, especially made with Steen's Louisiana Cane Vinegar. Serve it over salad greens, chopped purple cabbage and chopped golden peppers for a "mardi gras" salad.

Very good dressing!I used Creole whole-grain mustard, but I did not have cane vinegar here,so I subbed cider, as suggested, and we thought that it was an very delicious "full-bodied" dressing. I used it on a butter lettuce and cucumber salad. As hearty as this dressing is, I want to make it again, because I think that it would be great on a salad done with a spinach, or romaine lettuce base, with some red cabbage, and lots of sliced fresh veggies. Very tasty, and tangy, just how I like a dressing!
