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!

 
 

 

Onto the rest of the meal!  Follow the links to my friends blogs for their mouthwatering recipes and more chances to enter to win the amazing giveaway which will be at the end of this post.

Marion from Life Tastes Good made these amazing Caramelized Onion Smashed Potatoes.  I absolutely cannot wait to try these potatoes!

 

 
 
Last, but not least Renee from Renee’s Kitchen Adventures made this beautiful  Dijon Carrot Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting.  If you know Grumpy at all by now, you know that Carrot Cake is his favorite cake ever!  I’m absolutely certain he would love this

    Shelby, your salad looks amazing! I love using mustard in homemade vinaigrettes. I have not bought a bottle of vinaigrette in years. Thank you for participating in the Easter dinner!

    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?

    I love mustard on a gourmet grilled cheese with three cheeses. The type of mustard depends on my mood.

    I love mustard with soft pretzels. It just makes me think of going to the ballpark when I was a kid.

    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.

    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]
