Chef Tips

It’s important to use Dijon or Dijon style mustard for the vinaigrette dressing. Regular yellow mustard just doesn’t have enough bite to it. Dijon mustard comes from Burgundy area of France around the city of Dijon. The mustard has spices and is quite tart and dry tasting. It’s totally versatile and tastes good with everything, including hot dogs. There’s a number of brands out there – Roland, Maille, Grey Poupon, Bornibus to name but a few. Give it a try.
