Spicy Southwestern Citrus Dressing

Citrus and spice--Ooh that's nice.  

This is a take-off on Dr. Esselstyn's 321 Dressing.  321 standing for the amounts of vinegar (3), mustard (2), and liquid sweetener (1).  Some folks switch those numbers around, more sweetener or more mustard.  Whatever floats your boat, right?  My version could be called a 221, or even a 321 minus 1 plus 1/8, but that would be weird.

This recipe features Safeway's Sweet & Spicy Southwestern Style Mustard.  It's sweet and tangy and has a nice little bite.  If you can't find SSSSSM, use your favorite sweet and spicy mustard, or maybe a honey mustard plus some Southwest spice blend.  Just don't yell at me if you have to get out the calculator.
