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

Honey Mustard Sauce, dipping sauce,

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 HONEY MUSTARD SAUCE:

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

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. I get Honey Mustard when I sometimes order chicken tenders. It isn’t spicy at all {that’s the way I can eat it, because of all the medicine I take I can’t eat anything spicy at all. It will burn my mouth. I bought some from the grocery store and it is very spicy. I just want to know if your recipe is spicy or not. It really looks good.

  2. Amazing! Best honey mustard I’ve ever had. I licked the bowl clean when I was done. I was out of honey mustard and I was making a chicken salad with grapes and apples and the recipe called for honey mustard so I used your recipe. My goodness it is so good thank you for putting this recipe on your website

    Hi, my sauce came out much darker than this and I would like to know what I could do to lighten it, I like to follow the instructions along with the pictures so I’m quite unnerved it did not come out the same

      1. Bruno

        Big, medium og small cup ?
        Over here we tend to use exact measurements like 25 grams or 50 milliliter.

        How much is a cup ?

        Thank you from Denmark

        1. Hi! I have no idea what it would be in ml or gr, but 1/4 cup is roughly around 4 tablespoons, and one whole cup of mayonnaise is about 230 grams according to the mayonnaise container that I’m looking at right now. 🙂 And it says that 1 tablespoon of mayo is 14 grams. Does that help? I hope! 😀

    1. Hi Jenn! Yes, the cook at the restaurant suggested using cayenne and that is why I said that in the post – I was quoting his recipe – but I like using paprika instead, because of the smokiness that it adds to the overall taste. 🙂

  4. if you read the ingredients on fat-free items, you’ll see how many more chemicals they have then full-fat. They have found that you’re better off eating the full-fat. Fat-free actually cause weight gain.
