Almond dijon dressing!
Spring is flying by – am I right? I’m about a month into my new job and am liking it a lot so far! The culture is way different from my last gig (in a good way!) and I’ve been enjoying my morning walk to work.
I’ve got it down! Every day, I’m brewing a fresh Chemex, packing my salads, and am getting comfortable in my new adult wardrobe. My sloppiness has improved quite a bit! My imposter syndrome, however, is alive and well. I guess some of that comes with a new position where you’re trailblazing the whole time. I’m legit making it up as I go along.
As of late, I’m coming up with new ways to bring value to my team every day and can only hope that within a few months, I’ll be really busy forever and ever, the days will go quickly, and I will get my life back on track so I can do the hobbies I hold near and dear: aka this blog and deejaying.
When ranch dressing feels old and boring, I love making almond dijon dressing to literally spice things up a bit! The dressing is thick, luscious, creamy, and mustardy. Toss almond dijon dressing on top of your favorite salads or serve it as a dip in a vegetable tray! Slather almond dijon on a sandwich in place of mustard and mayo.
Not sure about you all, but I never got into mustard until I became vegan because it was the only naturally vegan condiment available at most restaurants to spice up a boring veggie sandwich. I’m a connoisseur of sorts. Fancy mustards rule, yellow mustard is solid, you really can’t go wrong. Almond dijon dressing calls for a dijon mustard and a stone ground mustard and mustard powder. Triple duty!
I’m really excited to show with you all that the look and feel of my photos will be changing from this post out! In the future, be on the lookout for fun vibrant backgrounds that really compliment my featured recipes. I think the yellow background really makes this almond mustard dressing pop! Don’t you agree?
I can’t wait to share what I’ve been tossing almond dijon dressing on! Here, I’ll give you a hint: the first word is cobb, and the second word is salad. It’s so good! It has coconut bacon, black salt tofu eggs and everything! Ahh my mouth is watering, seriously! It’s the perfect salad to pair almond dijon dressing with.
Making almond dijon dressing is pretty simple. First, soak some almonds, then blend with water, dijon, maple syrup, onion powder, mustard powder, and salt! Then, whisk in some stone ground mustard and you’ve got almond dijon dressing!
