Why Dijon Mustard Should Be Your New Favorite Condiment


Dijon mustard. How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.

Dijon is really a step above the rest when compared to other condiments. It provides a tangy, delicious bite that can elevate most savory dishes from good to something special. It can be added to sauces, soups and stews, as part of a meat and cheese board, sandwiches, and salad dressings. In all honesty, when I'm trying a new recipe, I try to find a version that includes Dijon in the mix...

Here are a few of my favorite ways to incorporate it.


Mini Beef Wellington


Smear a little Dijon on both sides of the steak before cloaking in the pastry dough. It provides a creamy, tangy bite that will make this already amazing dish even more delectable.

Pork Marsala


If I can't have Dijon in my Marsala sauce, then I don't want Marsala sauce at all.

The perfect lovechild of Dijon and mayo. What's it good on? Chicken. Roasted veggies. Use it in tuna or chicken salad instead of just mayo. Salad dressing. Sandwich spread. A spoon.

Cheese sauce


Now, I'm not one to think cheese needs any help. It can stand on it's own, for sure. But a little bit of Dijon makes it sparkle.

Dijon Crusted Salmon


While salmon is one of my weeknight go-to dishes, it can get a little...mundane. A little bit of Dijon can re-invigorate your taste buds.
