This sweet onion dijon dressing is pretty simple to make, and you will have enough of it for at least three salads.

Why should we eat more mushrooms?

Well, if you want to protect your hair, nails, and teeth, mushrooms are the foods to eat. Eating more mushrooms promotes better health and provides a great source of vitamin D which is essential for the regulation of calcium and to support lung function as well as cardiovascular health.

A reason to eat more eggs is that eggs are one of the most nutritious foods! A fun fact is that eggs include at least a little bit of every vitamin and mineral that is required for the human body. And let us not forget the benefits of avocado. This green fruit/vegetable, whatever you classify as fills you up. As a result, the digestive system runs more smoothly because of the large fiber content and it can keep your weight in check.

Mix up this recipe and make it out of order! So let’s start with the dressing! You will need:

  • onion
  • olive oil
  • mayonnaise
  • Dijon mustard
  • honey
  • apple cider vinegar
  • salt
  • pepper

Let’s put the whole plate together! You will need:
