Salad with Three-Mustard Vinaigrette


Three different kinds of mustard give this dressing its signature flavor. Mix your salad first and pour the vinaigrette over each individual portion. From the book "Mad Hungry," by Lucinda Scala Quinn (Artisan Books).

    Calder mentioned it was difficult to get greens dry without a salad spinner. I know a way. After a water bath, spread wet greens down the center of a bath towel. Fold towel lengthwise over greens, top and bottom. Then fold in the short ends. Place towel inside washing machine, folded ends against the inside of the washer. Put washer on spin only (making sure there will be no rinse!). Greens will come out perfectly dry.
