~Dijonnaise -- Mayonnaise, Dijon Mustard and Spices~

IMG_1628As far as mayonnaise-based condiments go, this is the condiment that makes everything taste fancy schmancy in a French kinda way.  It is sooooo good on sooooo many things.  To name a few: French fries, steamed or grilled vegetables, an ordinary ham or turkey sandwich, and, of course, a mouth-watering cheeseburger.  There's more.  It's great used as a dressing for potato salad.  Make a big batch or a small batch, whatever you need, it's only going to take five minutes.

Make a big batch or a small batch -- whatever you need:

IMG_1494For my French-style Dijonnaise:

6  tablespoons high-quality mayonnaise

3  tablespoons Grey Poupon Dijon mustard

1  generous teaspoon dehydrated minced garlic

1  generous teaspoon dehydrated minced onion

1/2  teaspoon coarse-grind black pepper

IMG_1501 IMG_1501 IMG_1501~ Step 1.  Measure and place all ingredients in a 1-cup-size food-storage container.  Stir to combine. Cover and refrigerate 1-2 hours prior to serving time to allow flavors to marry.  Store any leftovers in the refrigerator.

Try it on my French Onion Burgers w/Caramelized Onions:

Special Equipment List: 1 cup food-storage container w/tight-fitting lid; spoon

IMG_1239Cook's Note: For me, it's salad season the entire year, however, now that the warm weather has finally arrived, it's real-deal salad season.  I'm talking Summer salads made with a wider variety of higher-quality vegetables from local farmers' markets, and, in the upcoming weeks and months, veggies picked from my own garden.  These are salads I love to serve next to my favorite grilled meats, poultry, and, yes, even seafood...For that reason, I find myself taking the time to scratch-make dressings and vinaigrettes on a regular basis.  For another Dijon-based dressing, try my ~ Sweet & Tangy Honey-Dijon Balsamic Vinaigrette ~.
