Summer is here!
Summer made a swift entrance into town a couple of days ago already hitting 90+ degrees outside. It’s hot and I don’t feel like eating when it is hot out. I know, I know, I have to eat. I just don’t feel like it. I usually eat lots and lots of salad in summer. But salad gets boring. A couple of months ago I started making my own salad dressing. I have come across some great recipes for salad dressing. It has been fun experimenting with different kinds of dressings. Then I came across a recipe using Colman’s dry mustard powder. I never would have thought of using dry mustard as an ingredient!
Colman’s dry mustard powder has less than 15 calories and only 0.8 grams of fat per teaspoon. They have some great recipes on their website. Here’s one that I tried out and I absolutely love!
Colman’s Chili Vinaigrette Recipe
- 4 tbs. olive oil
- 1 tbs. white wine vinegar
- 1 tsp. Colman’s Original Powdered Mustard
- 4 “splashes” mild green Tabasco sauce
- ½ cup lemon juice
- 2 tsp. honey
- Mix all ingredients together. That’s it!
I had all the ingredients on hand so it was easy to whip it together fast. I put just enough on my salad to barely coat the lettuce and it was great!
The Chili Vinaigrette had just the right amount of sweet and spicy for me.
Now that I know about Colman’s Dry Mustard I am going to check out their website more often and find even more recipes to try.
Established in 1814, Colman’s of Norwich has been recognized widely as the English mustard in the world. Using a unique and zesty blend of brown mustard seeds (Brassica Juncea) and white mustard seeds (Sinapis Alba), Jeremiah Colman created a mustard with a flavorful heat sensation that has become an essential condiment and paramount ingredient in Britain’s favorite recipes, even to the highest royal order. In 1866 Queen Victoria bestowed the ultimate seal of approval – the Royal Warrant – galvanizing Colman’s as the crown jewel of mustards, securing its place in the most discerning kitchens around the world. Sold as prepared mustard and mustard powder, Colman’s provides a pure, fiery and complex condiment for all your recipes and dishes. Complete Your Cooking With Colman’s.
