Mustard Dressing

Contributed by: B GuinnAdded: Jun 03, 2011 at 01:25 PM


Quick and easy dressing for salads and possibly as a sauce for salmon.

Best Used By Blood Types:
  • Type A (5 beneficials)
  • Salad
  • 1 Tablespoon prepared mustard [check for avoids]
  • 1 Tablespoon garlic infused olive oil
  • 3 drops liquid Stevia or to taste
How to make it:
  1. Stir until blended, spread or drizzle over salad greens.
  2. If trying as a sauce for salmon, try one or two drops of Stevia for less sweetness with the fish.
  3. I tried this without Stevia and it was harshly strong. The Stevia made an amazing difference.
