21 Day Fix Dijon Vinaigrette. A healthy alternative to store-bought salad dressing. #recipe 21 Day Fix approved!

Did you know I haven’t bought salad dressing at the store for about 6 years?! When I was changing the way I eat, I did a lot of my own research about clean eating, and what I found out is that store-bought salad dressings have a lot of unhealthy additives in them!

I had no idea! I knew that some of the store-bought dressings could be high in fat, but I didn’t know that a simple vinaigrette dressing could be full of added sugar! And most of them are made with highly processed canola oil as well.

That’s when I started making my own salad dressings. My boys like to have salad with dinner, so once a week, I’ll make a jar of some homemade dressing and just keep it in the fridge to use. When the 21 Day Fix came out, I tried all of the dressings in the nutrition guide, and they were all delicious, but this vinaigrette is one of our favorite dressings!

But you don’t just have to use it on salads! You can also use this Dijon Vinaigrette to marinate meat in or to cook veggies with. It tastes delicious on pretty much anything. My hubby isn’t even a fan of mustard, but he does like this dressing!

**NOTE: be sure to take the dressing out of the fridge about 15 minutes before you use it because it will have hardened a little.
