Whole Grain Dijon: Instant Gourmet

If you are tired of having the same old grilled chicken and boiled salmon, it is time to spice it up...literally. I like to think of whole grain Dijon as the "wonder ingredient". If you don't have this staple in your fridge, you should be ashamed of yourself. It works wonders as a coating for chicken and salmon but can also be made into a vinaigrette and pairs extremely well with roasted and mashed potatoes. I like to put it on my turkey sandwiches and into chicken and tuna salad for a little extra crunch and heat. It can make the most boring dish into instant gourmet. Your friends and family will be ohhing and ahhing over your culinary abilities thanks to this one simple ingredient!

My favorite:

For Salmon (1 fillet):
(can be mixed with other things such as herbs, garlic etc)
1 TBS honey
1 TBS Whole Grain Dijon
1TBS Lemon Juice
salt and pepper

mix ingredients together in a dish and coat each side of salmon, place in pre-heated 400 degree oven for 10 min. VOILA.

Do The Dijon Thing,
