This recipe is great by itself, but it’s also the basis for many flavored dressings — there are lots of other recipes in NT that call for it, including “Herb Dressing,” “Garlic Dressing,” “Sun Dried Tomato Dressing,” and more!
Basic Dressing is found on page 129 of Nourishing Traditions: The Cookbook that Challenges Politically Correct Nutrition and the Diet Dictocrats by Sally Fallon.

- 1 teaspoon Dijon-type mustard smooth or grainy
- 2 tablespoons plus 1 teaspoon raw wine vinegar
- 1⁄2 cup extra virgin olive oil
- 1 tablespoon expeller-pressed flax oil
Add the olive oil in a thin stream, stirring with the fork. Keep stirring until it’s well-mixed or emulsified, then add the flax oil.
How’d it go?
Pretty straightforward! I was surprised with how much of this dressing I wanted to use in my salad. I thought I’d half the recipe and be able to split it with PH, but he was out while I was making this, and I ended up hogging the whole bowl to myself! Haha! It’s okay, I kinda need to load up on the long-chain fatty acids anyway.
How we liked it
Delicious! I don’t even like mustard and I loved this! Weird. It was just a great combination of flavors! With this recipe, you can make so many other, slightly trickier ones, which I’m excited to try. I don’t know about you, but I’ll never buy another factory-made, rancid GMO-oil-laden dressing again!
