Why I love this dressing
- It adds the right amount of flavor to the salad.
- The ingredients are simple.
- This dressing can be made in just a few minutes.
- You can substitute fresh dill if you have it handy.
- I love tangy dressings.
- This dressing can also be used to marinade chicken or fish.
- Add a little more dill and use as a vegetable dip.
Dried dill weed - This is a great seasoning to keep handy for dressings and dip. Dill is such a great flavor!
Dry mustard flour - This is a ground-up mustard seed.
Salt - regular table salt or any finely ground salt you have at home.
Sugar - just a small amount to balance the ingredients.
Apple Cider Vinegar - many believe this vinegar has health benefits.
If you don't have apple cider vinegar, red wine vinegar, or even a tart balsamic vinegar (the cheaper kind) will work well.
Dry mustard flour is ground mustard seeds. If your spice label says ground mustard seeds, it's the same spice and is an equal substitution.
In a covered container such as a 12 oz mason jar, add all ingredients. I typically add all the liquids first then add the dry ingredients.
Put the lid on and shake. You want the oil and vinegar to emuslify and the dried ingredients to be well incorporated.
Drizzle dressing on a freshly made lettuce and vegetable salad. The salad below is made of lettuce, sliced English cucumbers (aka burpless cucumbers), tomatoes and yellow pepper.
Yes! The standard substitution for fresh herbs is 3 to 1. For each teaspoon of a dried herb you need, substitute three teaspoons of the fresh herb. It will be a lot of dill so you may want to adjust the amount to your taste.
You can easily substitute honey.
