If I’m feeling extremely lazy then I’ll just mix the mustard with some hot sauce haha, but if I do that it most likely serves as a dip for steamed broccoli. I do recommend the sweetener in this though, even if it says optional! Then you get sort of a sweet and spicy sauce :)
Spicy Lemon Mustard Dressing
- Bed of greens (I used a baby kale mix)
- steamed green beans
- steamed broccoli
- roasted cauliflower
- green onions
- 1 T Dijon mustard
- 1 lemon, juiced (or half lemon half apple cider vinegar)
- 1/8 tsp. cayenne pepper
- Optional: 2 tsp. freeze dried chives
- Optional: sweetener such as stevia, maple syrup, or pineapple juice
Um..are directions really necessary? Well any who, the salad: toss everything together! The dressing: mix everything together in a small bowl. Now either pour your dressing on your salad or use as a dipping sauce.
The overall flavor of this without it is pretty strong so the sweetness helps mellow it out. I haven’t tried the pineapple juice in this but my guess is it’ll give it a nice tropical/thai flavor! Another option is to sub out the mustard for tahini or sunflower seed butter, but I haven’t tried this so I can’t vouch for it.
