I absolutely love a good Dijon mustard to really jazz up the flavor of side dishes and salads. This cauliflower salad is so easy, but due to the tasty Maille Dijon it’s super flavorful.

This side dish pairs so well with a variety of meals, there’s only three simple steps involved and it’s vegan and gluten-free, so everyone can enjoy.
