Love the idea. Never done it! I assume you can use agave?

Agave works great in this. You can also change out the types of vinegars, herbs etc depending on your salad. Super fun to do! 🙂

Where did you find corn free Dijon Mustard? I would think that vinegar and salt would contain corn, or so all the brands I have seen around here do.
I would love to have mustard again.
