Orange Mustard (Vegan Dijon Vinaigrette)


This Orange Mustard (Vegan Dijon Vinaigrette) recipe will quickly become a favorite if you need a quick oil-free and fat-free vegan salad dressing. The majority of salad dressing recipes use oil as a base, which adds a lot of fat as well as flavor. This one, however, is different because it uses rice vinegar instead of white vinegar for a delicious, tangy, and fat-free dressing that you can make over and over.

This salad dressing is adaptable and goes well with a variety of salads. Because of the Dijon and vinegar, the flavor is slightly tangy, but the latter also adds a hint of sweetness. A vinegar-based salad dressing may come as a shock if you’re used to creamy, heavier-tasting salad dressings like blue cheese or ranch.


Orange Mustard Salad Dressing



  • The type of vinegar you use in this recipe is up to you. Use apple cider vinegar instead of rice vinegar for a more refreshing and tangy rendition.
  • For a different take on this mustard-flavored dressing, try using infused vinegar (lemon is particularly good).
  • Feel free to add or substitute finely minced shallots for the minced garlic.
  • You can add a couple of teaspoons of honey to this dressing if you’re not on a vegan diet.
  • If you have any finely chopped fresh herbs on hand, feel free to use them. Combine parsley, chives, or thyme, or use a combination of all three.


Recipe Tips

  • Aside from dressing your favorite fresh green salad, salad dressing can be used in a variety of ways. Use a salad dressing to dress a side dish of fresh steamed vegetables like broccoli as well as kale, or even frozen vegetables straight from the bag.
  • Well with the addition of any salad dressing, you can make a simple vegetarian pasta salad out of any leftover cooked pasta and some vegetables, or a high-protein bean salad out of the same method.
  • Are you having a cookout? Use this dressing to marinate tofu or seitan for grilling, or drizzle it over a baked potato or oven-roasted new potatoes. It’s a quick and simple way to jazz up a side dish.


What’s The Best Way To Make  Creamy Orange Mustard?

Emulsify the salad dressing to make it extra creamy. BecauOrange Mustardse dijon mustard is a natural emulsifier, thoroughly whisking the mixture should suffice.

Pro tip: Instead of mixing, use your immersion blender or food processor to take it to the next level. I don’t do this very often because it seems time-consuming, but when I do, the results are always fantastic.

It also purees the minced garlic, resulting in a completely smooth dressing. This is entirely optional and will have no bearing on the outcome of the recipe.
