Place the mustard in a small jar. Add 1 tablespoon water and mix until it is smooth. Add remaining water, vinegar, soy sauce and Tabasco. Mix well. Pour over salad. Toss well to mix.

RECIPE HINT: Cover and chill for at least 2 hours before serving for best flavor. If you're in a rush, it may also be served soon after mixing. This has been a favorite salad of ours for years. It is wonderful to take to a picnic or potluck because everyone loves it.
