Dijon Mustard and Lemon Vinaigrette

If you want one boilerplate marinade for the summer, this is it. Perfect for chicken, shrimp, and any kind of fish. Marinate chicken for at least 4 hours, up to 12 in the fridge, shrimp for 1 to 2 hours, and fish for 30 minutes. The mustard helps emulsify the marinade, making it thicker so it really clings to the food. Recipe by Katie Workman, author of The Mom 100 Cookbook and creator of themom100.com blog - July 14, 2013
