Mustard Vinaigrette Salad Dressing
Homemade Salad Dressing. This is one of my favorite go to salad dressings. I love the apple cider vinegar in it because it ensures I do not have heartburn creep up after dinner. The acid also helps to break down the raw veggies which can be hard for the body to digest. The recipe below is perfect for one large salad. Scale up accordingly.
