This was super easy and delicious! I didn't use any salt or pepper and only had dijon mustard but it was great. I will get that whole grain mustard next time I go to the store. This is great on a salad or drizzled over grilled chicken. I used it on both.

Just what I was looking for! This was super - straightforward and easy enough to add some other flavors if you wanted to (more pepper, etc.) Pros: simple
