Heat destroys some of the flavors of evoo so it will taste different cooked or not.

I realize that and that is why I rarely cook with evoo.. However the question was about salad dressings, did I miss something...

Well the OP uses her evoo for cooking so I was just mentioning that the oil she uses might taste great for her usually because she is cooking it, but if she uses it in a raw application it might taste different so that may be why it is hitting her funny now. Trying a different brand would give a different flavor and maybe one that is more pleasant.

For salad dressing or any other "non-cooking" use, I use First Press Virgin olive oil. The greener and fruitier, the better. Trader Joe's has a nice one if you have one in your area.
Also, not sure how much Dijon mustard you are using. Maybe try adding a little more along with any added vinegar.
