Holy Crap It's Good Whole Grain Mustard and Basil Dressing

That title is not meant to be cute (although I kind of thought it was) - it's really because everyone who I have made taste this dressing says "holy crap!" This is the mustard "dressing" I've been putting on everything from meat and potatoes to salads, and sometimes just eating right off the spoon (it's that good). This comes again from the Fried Chicken & Champagne cookbook. (I promise they are not paying me to promote them). Make a double batch, then keep in the fridge and you will have another easy salad dressing option.

Whole Grain Mustard and Basil Dressing (makes 2 Cups)
You will need: 
  • 1/4 C seasoned rice wine vinegar (the seasoned is important)
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 2 T whole-grain mustard 
  • 2 T yellow mustard (the kind you put on hot dogs)
  • 3 large basil leaves, chopped
  • 3/4 tsp kosher salt
  • 3/4 tsp black pepper
  • 1 T granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • 1/2 T mustard seeds
  • 3/4 C canola oil
  • 3/4 C olive oil
In a food processor, add all ingredients except for oils. Puree until smooth. With machine running, pour oils in in a constant stream until the dressing is emulsified. This will keep for weeks in the fridge in an air-tight container. I told you it was easy!!!
