AN EASY HOMEMADE HONEY MUSTARD SAUCE RECIPE

ONE of my favorite things today: Honey Mustard Sauce! Delicious and simple, smooth and creamy dipping sauce that also serves as a salad dressing!

I could eat my screen.

Hello hello, friends! It’s Monday and I’m really in a chocolate cake type of mood, and since I also have a full day of work + back-to-school shopping + soccer practice, I think that’s more than a good enough reason to tackle both, chocolate AND cake.

But first, Honey Mustard and all the things that you can dip IN IT.

Honey Mustard Sauce Recipe - You are only 6 ingredients away from making your favorite dipping sauce right at home!

Look at this dreamy and creamy little sauce! How can we survive one more moment just looking at it on our screen? It needs to appear in our hands, STAT.

Lemme ask you a question, though. Do you ever ask your waiter about how your food was prepared and what ingredients were used? I do that. A LOT. I think I embarrass my friends and husband, but do I care? nope. I’m a food blogger – they should accept me for who I am, gosh darn it!  

A while back, like years and years, I was at a Baker’s Square restaurant (are those still around?!) and ordered my usual chicken fingers with honey mustard. This particular time, though, the honey mustard sauce tasted even better than ever before. All I wanted to do was drink up the sauce.

When the waiter came back, I had to ask – how do you make this?!? He went back to the kitchen and returned with a piece of paper that said “secret recipe, BUT here’s my own…”

INGREDIENTS FOR HOMEMADE HONEY MUSTARD SAUCE:

  • Yellow Mustard
  • Dijon Mustard
  • Mayonnaise
  • Vinegar
  • salt, pepper, cayenne pepper

(See recipe card below for ingredient amounts.)

The chef couldn’t give me the restaurant’s recipe, but gave me his own, which was just as good!
I have been making it almost exactly as his recipe with very few tweaks for the past 10 years and we totally love it. It’s wildly delicious.

RECIPE NOTES

  • I like to change this up sometimes and add yogurt instead of mayonnaise when I want to use it as a salad dressing.
  • Also, for a healthier spin, I have used Hellmann’s Cholesterol-Free and Egg-Free Sandwich Spread in place of the mayonnaise.
  • I especially like to make this when we have company because you can serve it with anything from chicken nuggets to pretzel bites, to raw veggies. Sweet and tangy, this homemade take on a classic appeals to both, kids and adults.

Now all I want to do is make one massive bowl of Honey Mustard Sauce with a side of chicken fingers. Some chicken nuggets, too. Some carrots! Zucchini! Some asparagus?!?

Okay I’ll stop.

ENJOY!

  1. Hello from New Zealand, I have been searching for such recipe and this one of yours seems to be the one I want to try. However, this yellow mustard, would that be the tangy non-hot mustard and not the English mustard? I need to make this recipe of yours and want to get it right! Thank you for sharing!

      Hi!
      Yellow mustard is not hot and it’s not English mustard, for sure. Click for 👉 yellow mustard on Amazon. FYI, this is an affiliate link. I hope this helps.

  2. First time I made this I didnt have any dijon mustard so u sed whole grain it still came out well but I am about to try a new mix by using half wholegrain mustard and half dijon. I live in Britain and have trouble getting things like honey mustard dip and red and green pepper jelly. If anyone has an easy recipe for pepper jelly I’d love to try it.

  3. So good and so easy! I halved the recipe and made it with maple syrup instead since I didn’t have any honey on hand. Still turned out delicious!

  4. I made this sauce on Christmas Eve to go with my homemade chicken strips, and it was a HUGE hit. Everyone commented on how delicious it was and said it tasted even better than restaurant honey mustard sauces. I will definitely make this recipe again! Thank you!!

  5. Just made this – SOOOOO good! I wish I would rate this recipe 10 stars! Will definitely be a new staple with my chicken! Thanks Katerina!
