Add Kick to the Everyday Salad with Colman’s Mustard



I am not one to post press releases, unless I think it might be something that readers would be interested in.

Colman’s shared their latest release with me which included a couple of recipes I think my readers might enjoy.

I love mustard, especially on ham and Swiss sandwiches and pretzels (the kind you get from a NYC sidewalk vendor). My husband on the other hand cannot stand mustard. Once I tried making a recipe that called for just a hint of mustard. Some how he smelled it the moment he got home from work and asked me if I made something with mustard. I fluffed the truth a bit and said “no”, in hopes that he would try the recipe and love it. Sadly the moment he put the food I prepared in his mouth he knew it had mustard in it and wouldn’t eat it. Oh well.

I’m going to hold on to these recipes so I can prepare them for family get togethers. I’m sure my extended family will enjoy them.

Summer is the perfect time to re-invigorate your favorite salad and change it from being a boring side dish to a healthful main course. Adding just a smidge of Colman’s mustard to your favorite salad dressing can turn the common into something extraordinary. Now pair your spicy new dressing with summers bounty and fresh produce and you’ll be eating salad all summer.

Just a dash of Colman’s Mustard is all it takes to make a zesty, nutritious, gourmet vinaigrette dressing at home. Those that prefer an even hotter taste can try Colman’s Chili Vinaigrette, while those looking for a milder, refreshing salad topper can experiment with Colman’s Zesty Salad Dressing. Either way, with Colman’s Mustard there is no excuse to get bored or frustrated when trying to eat more salads in an effort to get ready for the up-coming summer season. In fact, Colman’s Mustard has less than 15 calories and only 0.8 grams of fat per teaspoon!

  1. Salad looks great right now

  2. Robin Wilson says:

    Is this a yellow or brown mustard? I like mustard too, but some brown mustard is just too spicy for me and takes away from the taste of my food. I like mustard on ham and swiss, but pretzels? Nope, guess I am not sophisticated enough for that! LOL 🙂 The recipes look great! PS: My hubby is the same way about mayo, has to be Miracle Whip or else he won’t eat it!

  3. I love salads , mustard is okay but spicy mustard is YUCK. The zesty salad dressing sounds good to me. I use mustard of hard or soft pretzels too.

  4. I now like mustard better than I used to. I am toying with using mustard in my home-made salad dressing.

    Colman’s is my husband’s absolute favorite mustard – so much so that when we visit our place in Europe I have to pack a bottle in my suitcase for him in case we cannot find it in the store there!. Love the recipe for the spicy dressing – I usually make mine with the dry Colman’s but I’ll have to try it you way next time.
