Made exactly as the recipe called for. Needed something very quick and easy and this did not fail in that area. And to top it off it was absolutely delicious. I'll definitely do this one again.

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
