Instructions

Chipotle Mustard Vinaigrette

  • Place all ingredients in a food processor or blender. Blend until smooth. Add additional salt or pepper to taste (optional).
  • Store in a jar or sealed container in the refrigerator. Shake before using.
  • Uses: salad dressing or marinade for chicken or steak. To use as a marinade: coat meat and let marinate for at least 4 hours.

Balsamic Marinade for Chicken

  • Whisk together all ingredients in a measuring cup.
  • To use: pour marinade over 1 pound chicken breasts or tenders. Make sure all your chicken is about the same size for even cooking. Let marinate for at least 4 hours in refrigerator.
  • To cook: heat grill to medium high heat. Grill until meat is no longer pink. Let rest for 10 minutes before slicing and serving.

The BEST Steak Marinade

  • Whisk together all ingredients in a measuring cup.
  • To use: pour marinade over 1 pound steak (such as skirt steak, London broil, or flank steak).
  • To grill: preheat grill to medium high heat. Sear the meat on each side, cooking until desired doneness. For skirt steak, cook 3-5 minutes per side for medium rare to medium.

Roasted Garlic Dressing

  • Roast your garlic: preheat oven to 400°F. Slice off just the top of the garlic so the cloves are all exposed. Place on a square of foil and top with 1 tablespoon olive oil. Wrap tightly and bake 25-40 minutes, or until soft. Let cool at least 20 minutes.
  • Carefully squeeze the garlic cloves out of the peels into a blender or food processor. Add remaining 1/2 cup olive oil and remaining ingredients. Blend until smooth. Add more salt or pepper to taste.
  • Uses: perfect for salad or a mayo-free potato salad!
  • To make Roasted Potato Salad: slice 1 pound of washed baby yellow potatoes in half. Place on a greased cookie sheet. Toss with olive oil, salt, and pepper. Roast at 400°F for about 30 minutes, stirring occasionally. Place in serving bowl. Cool 20 minutes. Meanwhile, cook 4 slices bacon until crisp. Drain and crumble. Chop a handful of cilantro or flat-leaf parsley. Mix potatoes, cilantro, and bacon in serving bowl and toss with dressing. Store in refrigerator.

Raspberry Mustard Dip

  • Mix all ingredients in serving bowl. Store in refrigerator.
  • Uses: great for dipping vegetables, roasted or raw. Put on a veggie tray at parties, or use for dipping pretzels. Can also be used as a glaze for grilled chicken!
