We recently took a little journey to the west coast with a slew of amazing belle-friends…17 to be exact…

While there, our hosts at the AMAZING Inn at Newport Ranch served meal after meal that kept us raving!  One item that especially caught our attention was the salad dressing that has become their signature.  Luckily, they were kind enough to share their secret…from Mendocino Jams and Preserves.  

They happen to use the ginger mustard

…to give their dressing a little somethin’ special.  Here’s the how-to…

Mendocino Mustard Vinaigrette

2 T “Our Ginger Mustard” (from Mendocino Jams & Preserves)

2 T Balsamic vinegar

6 T extra virgin olive oil

2 t chopped shallot

1 t maple syrup (may use honey)

Place all in a good jar or cruet…give it a good shake…and you are set!
