Kitchen Sink Salad and Mustard Lemon Dressing

I love fresh, crunchy salad but I have to admit that if a salad takes too long to prepare it isn’t a week night staple for me. That’s why I like kitchen sink salad. Kitchen sink salad is easy to make and easy to adjust to the season. Just use any vegetables you have hanging around in your refrigerator. Add four cups of salad greens to three cups of mixed chopped vegetables. You can also cook up some sweet potatoes to add to the mixture. Yum!

The mustard lemon dressing is olive oil based. It’s made with the goodness of Canadian maple syrup, mustard, garlic and lemon juice. I prefer a tart dressing so this recipe is not too sweet. So if you like your salad sweet add a little more maple syrup.

Store leftover dressing in the refrigerator and use it as a marinade for Tempe or Tofu. Sop up the marinade with Homestyle Bread. Delicious!

Enjoy!
