Perks Up Any Salad
Mustard-Sour Cream Dressing

This Mustard-Sour Cream Dressing is a great way to liven up a plain lettuce salad or any simple salad recipe.

This tart yet tangy flavoured simple dressing recipe can be used on any type of lettuce, with or without any other vegetables. I personally also like it on my grilled pork chops.

Although this recipe is basically vinegar & oil based (namely a vinaigrette), the addition of the sour cream makes it thick and rich, so that it clings to the lettuce.

The mild mustard flavour is just subtle enough not to overpower the tartness of the vinegar or sour cream.
