{ Salad with Mustard Vinaigrette }

 

My mom is the queen of vinaigrette! She is the one who sent me this winter salad recipe, along with this creamy green goddess dressing. After eating and drinking our way through Santa Barbara, and also being inspired by all the fresh fruit and vegetables, my husband and I are trying to detox a bit this week. This salad hit the spot last night. I hope this simple vinaigrette makes my mom proud!
