No-Waste Tangy Mustard Marinade

This recipe puts a new twist on our economical dressing-in-a-jar idea. Whip up a tangy marinade using the bit of mustard at the bottom of a jar. (We chose whole grain, but Dijon works just as well.) Toss in a few pantry staples, and shake the container. You'll have enough to coat two chicken breasts or one pork tenderloin.
