In the wake of the Olivia Wilde, Harry Styles, and Jason Sudeikis drama, Grey Poupon mustard has savagely trolled the actress’ ‘special’ salad dressing – which was at the center of the controversy – by releasing Don’t Worry Darling-themed jars.

Last week, Wilde and Sudeikis’ former nanny told DailyMail.com that the heartbroken Ted Lasso star, 47, was so devastated when he realized that his ex-fiancée had prepared something he referred to as her ‘special salad dressing’ for the former One Direction member, 28, that he laid under her vehicle in a desperate bid to prevent her from visiting the British superstar. 

The nanny’s claims sparked a flurry of speculation and intrigue on social media – where dozens of people called for Wilde, 38, to reveal the scandalous recipe to the world, while others questioned what kind of dressing would be worth such a dramatic response from Sudeikis.

Days later, Wilde responded by sharing the recipe for the salad dressing to her Instagram Stories, which included two tablespoons of Grey Poupon mustard, two tablespoons of good red wine vinegar, and six tablespoons of olive oil.

Now, Grey Poupon hilariously got involved in the drama, announcing on Thursday that they will be selling limited-edition Don’t Worry Dijon jars of mustard – referencing the movie that brought Wilde and Styles together in the first place.

According to the brand, the jars will also come with Wilde’s ‘iconic’ dressing recipe on the back.

The ad for the mustard even showed the bottle wrapped in a feather boa – which Styles famously wore when he attended the Grammys in March 2021.

Naturally, many people were entertained by Grey Poupon’s involvement, and flooded the comment section with their thoughts, with one person calling it ‘brilliant,’ and another branding it ‘iconic.’

‘Marketing and PR [team for Grey Poupon] gets a raise,’ someone else said, while a third person wrote, ‘THE BOA PLEASE.’

‘This needs to be put in the MoMA,’ joked a different user. A sixth comment read, ‘The devil works hard but dijon works harder.’

Is this the ‘special’ salad dressing that sent Jason Sudeikis into a spiral? How to make Olivia Wilde’s red wine vinaigrette

 

A recipe that Wilde shared with the Food Network for her salmon salad with zucchini and potatoes included a recipe for a red wine vinaigrette. 

The recipe requires only six ingredients:  

  • 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • Pinch kosher salt
  • 1 clove garlic, finely chopped
  • Olive oil, for emulsifying

To prepare the dressing, Wilde advises that you ‘add the red wine vinegar, Dijon mustard, honey, salt and garlic to a small bowl and mix to combine. In a slow steady stream, add 2 to 4 tablespoons olive oil, stirring as you go to emulsify’.

Mixed greens are then tossed in the vinaigrette, before kalamata olives, feta, and cucumber are added. 

The dish is then topped with salmon, zucchini, and potatoes.

Others, however, were not entertained by it, with someone else writing, ‘I thought this was a classy brand.’

‘Not Grey Poupon capitalizing on the DWD drama,’ wrote another unapproving Instagram user, while a third told them to ‘delete’ it.

Wilde revealed her mysterious dressing while sharing a snippet from Nora Ephron’s novel Heartburn – an autobiographical book that details the author’s divorce from her cheating ex-husband, famed journalist Carl Bernstein. 

The actress posted a snap of a page from the best-selling novel, in which the author detailed how her character, Rachel, made dinner for her husband, Mark, while teaching him to make a vinaigrette dressing. 

‘I made bouillabaisse, and crème brûlée, and in between there was a salad,’ Ephron – the writer behind famed movie When Harry Met Sally – wrote in the tome. 

‘I taught Mark to make the vinaigrette. Mix two tablespoons Grey Poupon mustard with two tablespoons good red wine vinegar. 

‘Then, whisking constantly with a fork, slowly add six tablespoons olive oil, until the vinaigrette is thick and cream.

‘This makes a very strong vinaigrette that’s perfect for salad greens like [arugula] and watercress and endive.’ 

Interestingly, the recipe listed in Ephron’s book is nearly identical to one that Wilde herself previously shared with the Food Network. 

Wilde’s recipe called for many of the same ingredients that were featured in Ephron’s book – red wine vinegar, mustard, and olive oil – however, the actress also added honey, a pinch of kosher salt, and a finely chopped clove of garlic during the Food Network appearance. 

‘Add the red wine vinegar, Dijon mustard, honey, salt and garlic to a small bowl and mix to combine,’ she suggested in the recipe, which was published by the network in 2020. 

‘In a slow steady stream, add two to four tablespoons olive oil, stirring as you go to emulsify.’

She suggested tossing a bowl of mixed greens in the vinaigrette, before adding Kalamata olives, feta, cucumber, salmon, zucchini, and potato. 

While Wilde may well have taken inspiration from Ephron when creating her own dressing recipe, her decision to share a page from the author’s book seems to be about far more than simply offering up vinaigrette instructions to the world.

While Heartburn was written as a novel and does not use Ephron’s real name, it is known to be based largely on the writer’s marriage to and split from her journalist ex-husband Bernstein, of Woodward and Bernstein fame – who cheated on her while she was pregnant with their child. 

Wilde and Sudeikis' former nanny told DailyMail.com in an exclusive interview last week that when Sudeikis noticed that Wilde had made a salad with her 'special dressing' to bring to Styles, he became so upset that he got underneath Wilde's car so that she couldn't bring the meal to the singer

Described as an ‘inspired confection of adultery, revenge, group therapy, and pot roast,’ the book tells the story of food writer Rachel (based on Ephron) and her marriage to political journalist Sam (based on Bernstein), who has an affair with a woman named Thelma Rice – who is based on Margaret Jay, the daughter of former British Prime Minister James Callaghan, with whom Bernstein had an illicit romance.

Wilde has repeatedly denied that she was unfaithful to Sudeikis, telling Vanity Fair earlier this year: ‘The complete horses**t idea that I left Jason for Harry is completely inaccurate.’

Sudeikis and Wilde began dating in 2011 and became engaged in 2013; she and Styles first confirmed that they were dating when photographers caught them holding hands in January 2021 at his manager, Jeff Azoff’s wedding, after the pair fell in love on the set of her movie Don’t Worry Darling in late 2020.

The couple’s former nanny told DailyMail.com in an exclusive interview last week that when Sudeikis noticed that Wilde had made a salad with her ‘special dressing’ to bring to Styles, he became so upset that he got underneath Wilde’s car so that she couldn’t bring the meal to the singer. 

Sudeikis and Wilde later hit back at their former employee’s allegations in a joint statement, saying: ‘As parents, it is incredibly upsetting to learn that a former nanny of our two young children would choose to make such false and scurrilous accusations about us publicly.’
