There is more to dijon mustard than meets the eye. Here's what we think you need to know:
BEST TRADITIONAL: Maille Dijon Originale, $3.99 (7.5 ounces)
Delicious wine flavors with a peppery kick put this extra smooth and creamy Dijon at the top of the pack. Whisk it into a vinaigrette for greens with an equally robust flavor, like arugula. This one is also great for kicking up marinades and pan sauces.
BEST COARSE-GRAIN: Grey Poupon Country Dijon, $2.39 (8 ounces)
This sharp, almost chewy but still spreadable Dijon has lots of heat. Add to a charcuterie platter or slather on a sandwich for a sinus-clearing treat. All those seeds also add flavor and visual interest to sour cream-- or yogurt-based sauces.
