FOOD HOLIDAY: It’s National Mustard Day

National Mustard Day falls on the first Saturday of August. That’s today.

How should you celebrate?

  • Check out all the different types of mustard in our Mustard Glossary. You won’t believe how many there are!
  • Buy a new specialty mustard to enjoy with lunch or dinner. See reviews of some of our favorite mustards.
  • Try some recipes with mustard. It has almost no calories. Mix it into potato salad, for example—it cuts down on the mayo. Try a mustard crust on fish or meat instead of a higher-calorie sauce. Make flavorful dips with yogurt and mustard instead of sour cream and mayonnaise. Mix a teaspoon of Dijon mustard into vinaigrette. You’ll find more uses than you can shake a spoon at.
  • Read the history of mustard—a good read, by the way. Mustard is hot stuff!
