With all the ripe strawberries at the market, it was time to make this fun spin on the classic condiment. The sweet berries paired with good Dijon mustard make for a unique taste bud tickling tandem. My favorite way to use it is on a roast chicken sandwich piled with sliced cucumbers, baby greens, and a few pickled red onions. It is equally delicious with cheese and crackers. A good Saint-André or a mild goat cheese pairs nicely.
*One note-- when I make this mustard, I make sure to pat the sliced strawberries dry between paper towels. This removes some of the moisture, allowing the mustard to keep in the refrigerator for a longer period of time. Otherwise, you will wind up with a soupier strawberry mustard, but it will still be good.
Strawberry Dijon Mustard
makes about 1/2 cup
1/2 cup sliced strawberries
1 Tablespoon Dijon mustard
1/2 teaspoon grainy Dijon Mustard
1 teaspoon seedless strawberry preserves
Place the sliced strawberries on a paper towel and pat dry to remove excess moisture. Chop the sliced strawberries into a fine dice. In a small bowl, combine the diced strawberries with the mustards and preserves. Refrigerate in an airtight container for up to 2 days. Enjoy!
