This is a great, tangy, tasty vinaigrette--perfect on plain green salads, or on taco salads.

Top Review by Cinnamon Turtle

I was looking for a dressing for a taco salad and this one was perfect! When I first tasted it, the mustard seemed a little odd. But after mixing it with the salad, it blended perfectly with the other ingredients. I halved the recipe, used fresh salsa, and added only two tablespoons of oil. I had a lot leftover, so the next day I mixed it with sour cream for an excellent taco topping and with avocado for a super quick guacamole. We love Mexican/Southwestern food, so I know I'll be finding lots of uses for this one. Thanks!
