Lemon Mustard Vinaigrette

No matter how hard you work sometimes, your to-do list never seems to shrink. I'll sneak super-easy things on to my list for almost-instant gratification.

Send an email to my boss? Cross that off.

Go make a cup of tea? Check.

Mail a letter? All over that.

Eventually, you have to come back to the Real List. And you haven't done a dang thing.

This vinaigrette is so fancy, you'll feel like you've accomplished something big. Not quite world peace. But big.

Lemon meets pepper meets garlic meets mustard. Heaven.

Dress up some chickpeas, greens, mozzarella, and dried cranberries.

Look at you. You've done something big today.
