Maille Canada

Lemon-Dijonnaise Salad

This salad is a light, appetite-stimulating starter. Maille® Dijonnaise, a mix of whole grain Dijon mustard and mayonnaise, is combined with lemon and olive oil for a bright, yet creamy, vinaigrette. Both Dijon Mustard and pine nuts are said to have aphrodisiac properties.
