Dijon Mustard

A little bit of Dijon in everything from salad dressing to dips to tuna fish salad to macaroni and cheese to pan sauces turns things from blah to not blah very quickly. Even if your family is not a mustard family, when used as an ingredient in various dishes it elevates the flavor much like salt or pepper or soy sauce. Dijon mustard also includes wine or vinegar or both for that identifiable tang, and is the mustard I most use in cooking. You can use smooth or coarse ground, or if you fall in love, buy both so you can vary things up.
