Cucumber Boats and Mustard Vinaigrette

Here is an easy lunch that we throw together sometimes at our house.  The vinaigrette is something we keep on hand and use quite alot.  It’s a staple in our kitchen, finding itself on anything from fresh salad to steamed veggies!  We found this dressing emulsifier at Target that we use to make our dressing and we love it.  You pour all the ingredients into the jar and then pump the handle up and down to mix it.  It’s perfect 🙂
