Mustard Jar Salad Dressing

Don’t let a single drop of Dijon go to waste!

There I was concocting a salad dressing from scratch, when I opened the Dijon mustard to find just enough clinging to the sides of the jar to add to the recipe—if only I could extract it. What to do? Instead of scrounging to empty the jar, I filled it instead! In went the rest of the ingredients, on went the top…and, with a vigorous shake or two, I had a quick-and-delicious dressing!


  • 1 tsp+ Dijon mustard
  • 2-3 Tbsp EVOO
  • 1 tbsp Champagne vinegar
  • 2 tbsp Balsamic vinegar
  • Fresh lemon juice from 1/2 lemon
  • 1-2 tsp Herbes de Provence
  • 1-2 cloves garlic minced/crushed

Optional Additions and Substitutions

  • Touch of OJ, to taste


Simply add the ingredients to the jar—and shake! (Or…if your mustard jar is still full, just scoop out your teaspoon and create your dressing in a separate jar!)
