Top Review by Aroostook

On the plus side...I followed the directions and it came together fine. On the fence... After tasting, I did add a bit of salt and pepper. I tried this on a simple green salad and on a sandwich. Checked to see if the mustard was prepared or ground. (It was prepared which is what I used) On the down side...I just didn't care for the texture or the taste of this recipe at all. It reminded me more of a mustard pickle sauce than a mayonnaise. I even tried marinating cukes in it. It just didn't work for my taste buds. Sorry! =(
