Honey Dijon Spinach Salad

Please see the end of this post for a great salad round up!
Honey Dijon Spinach Salad is the start to a Progressive Easter Dinner being hosted by some of my best blogging friends and Maille® Mustard.  This delicious dinner also brings with it an amazing giveaway by our friends at  Maille® Mustard and Revol that includes some fantastic prizes from France!

Honey Dijon Spinach Salad
In February, my friends Michele from Flavor Mosiac, Renee from Renee's Kitchen Adventures and Marion from Our Life Tastes Good and I shared a Valentine's Dinner Menu with you and we enjoyed it so much that we decided that we would do the same thing for Easter.  Then Michele was contacted by a representative from Maille® Mustard and a plan to create the dinner around this product evolved!

Honey Dijon Spinach Salad
My contribution to this amazing dinner is this gorgeous Honey Dijon Spinach Salad.  I love the combination of the raspberries, almonds, feta and spinach lightly coated with a mouthwatering Honey Mustard Vinaigrette made with the Maille® Honey Dijon Mustard.  The sweet tang of the mustard paired awesomely with the salty feta and crunchy almonds!  It was a match made in heaven!

Well....I love mustard on hot dogs...that was what first came to mind but I'm also using it in a glaze for our Easter ham. I use mustard for a all kinds of things...doesn't everyone?

OH MY GOSH Shelby! I love spinach salads they are my favorite I can not wait to make this salad. Mustard is the number one condiment in our house I am always picking up different kinds to try. I make a chicken dish that I slather dijon mustard on it but love it on a sandwich too.

I think this was the easiest giveaway I've ever entered! I'm already following all of you everywhere so it was just click, click, click. Haha :) The salad is gorgeous, Shelby. I love the combo of raspberries and feta. In fact, I'm completely obsessed with feta. The dressing sounds like the perfect complement.

Jeannie said...

I got confused with the comments at the top instead of the bottom of your post. Sorry, don't think it's super weird when you read I like mustard on my Bratwurst in your Blueberry post! [thumping my head and rolling my eyes]

Shelby Law Ruttan said...

:) Jeannie, that is just fine. :)
