This grainy mustard vinaigrette is a great dressing to have in your repertoire. It’s a vinaigrette, so it’s nice and light. This grainy mustard vinaigrette makes for a great marinade as well. I love to use this vinegar to dress a cabbage slaw made from a mix of thinly shaved red and green cabbage and fennel. The shaved fennel and grainy mustard make an excellent flavor combination!
Beets are one of the best vegetables to eat if you want to gently detox and cleanse the body. This salad can be combined with either proteins or starches with a few adjustments!
Example Of A Starch:
Enjoy a starch with this salad dressing like starchy vegetables such as potatoes, winter squashes, and steamed grains like quinoa and farro!
Example Of A Protein:
Enjoy a protein with this salad dressing like wild-caught salmon or other high-quality animal proteins. Plant-based protein examples would be nuts and seeds or sprouted tofu/tempeh.
This grainy mustard vinegarette has olive oil in the dressing, so technically, this dressing pairs best with starches. Proteins and oils are slow to digest and break down within the body and can often cause Combining fat and unwanted “puffiness” and general fullness. Try pairing this dressing with a big salad, using it as a slaw like this recipe, and enjoying it with starchy and non-starchy vegetables. Food combination is a tool and suggestion to optimize digestion and overall well-being. You do you! The dressing is still delicious, and it’s for anyone who loves an excellent grainy mustard vinegarette!
