The Joy of Mustard


August is National Mustard Month, and Marisolio has a  wonderful recipe involving mustard to share with you.

Our staff has been raving over a wonderful salad we were recently served at one of our cooking demonstrations.  Aubrey Hanshaw came up with the recipe and we are calling it Butter Lettuce/Mandarin Orange/Avocado Salad.  The salad itself is composed of butter lettuce, sliced avocado, one can of mandarin oranges (drained), sliced purple onion and sliced almonds.  The dressing recipe is as follows:

2 T. Marisolio Frantoio Leccino Extra Virgin Olive Oil
2 T.  Marisolio Blood Orange Olive Oil
2 T. Marisolio Cranberry Pear Balsamic
1- 2 T. Murphys Motherload Mustard
salt and pepper to taste

Place balsamic and mustard in blender or food processor and slowly add oil until dressing is emulsified.  Add salt and pepper to taste.  Drizzle desired amount over salad.

You can get these oils and balsamic by stopping by the shop at 488 Main Street, Murphys, by phoning us at (209) 728-8853, or by visiting our website
