Salad with Lemon Mustard Vinaigrette

Just so you know, it's not all about chocolate cake and pasta and rich stew and other fattening foods here on Misadventures of Mrs. B.

Oh, no.

Sometimes I like to play it light.

Like tonight.  As soon as the temps start to warm up even a little bit and it looks like spring will actually show itself, I feel the urge to eat salad.

I know! Right? Crazy.

So tonight I figured it might be a good idea to make a salad and feature my favorite and easiest dressing!

Start off with a tablespoon of dijon mustard.

Add a tablespoon of spicy brown mustard.

Mix in three to four tablespoons of lemon juice.  Whisk it vigorously.

Then drizzle in a stream of olive oil as you whisk constantly.  Emulsify.  So scientific.

While this was going on, I was sauteing these beautiful babies...

In a lovely combination of olive oil, I Can't Believe It's Not Butter (hey, like I said, I try to lighten up when possible) and one pressed clove of garlic.

Oh, yum.  Yum yum yum.

I drizzled my dressing over a plate of greens, topped it off with sliced avocado and the mushrooms.

Heaven...I'm in heaven...


And it went great...with my...burger.

Hey.  I can't go completely light.

oh see it was definitely destiny...i lost my lemon vinegarette about 15 years ago when i moved up from florida...i bet this is it!lol. love the idea of mushies on top of salad...i will definitely try this this summer, honestly i don't like them much raw so i don't usually include them, but i do love them cooked & smothered in butter.

so glad you found a new way to make bread pudding...i guess it's pretty much the same..but my oven conked out on me last year and i had to find some new alternatives. i sure missed the warmth of baking over the winter though, and the house never smells the same either lol.

thanks so much for stopping by!

Have to say, way, way less exciting than all the other goodies you make ... ;) But salad's great too.

And I'm sorry to hear things have been rough. You sound like you're an INCREDIBLE caretaker, though, and you have the patience of the saint. Definitely praying for everyone in your home.

Ohhh yummy my dear, love it!

As for the crock pot liners they are a MUST. You can pick them up at like Target I believe it's like 5 in a box for $2. So worth every penny when you think about scrubbing!

Oh wow, that's so nice! I just found out that I can't eat commercial salad dressings because of the high fructose corn syrup - this is such a great alternative!

I'm writing for you. I'm speaking to you.

So I would like to hear from you in return. Did that story make you laugh, or think? Does that recipe look good? Do you relate to me or totally disagree?

Let me hear what YOU think!
