    I agree with Latchy, this dressing is fabulous, and the mint adds soooo much. The only "brownish" mustard I had on hand was Luzianne Creole mustard, and it worked very well. I used the mushrooms and raw zucchini, plus pineapple and mandarin oranges, and a small amount of plain baked chicken since the salad was for our lunches. Hubby liked it, I liked it, and i'm so glad that you posted this recipe, Paula! Thanks also to ellie for suggesting this recipe in Recipe Request!
