Creamy mustard salad dressing is simply decadent with the addition of hard-cooked eggs. I like to serve this dressing over Romaine Lettuce. and it is also be great on a spinach salad. Making your own salad dressing is much easier than you might think. It is nice to be able to control what goes in your dressing and adjust for your dietary needs. Try using a sugar substitute or sour cream for a healthier version of this delicious salad dressing.
