This homemade honey mustard dressing recipe is so easy to prepare and tastes better than anything you’ll buy at the store! You’ll just need five ingredients and a couple of minutes to whisk it together. Prepare to start dipping everything in sight!
I’m not going to lie – I’ve been a ranch girl most of my life.
(Especially this homemade ranch dressing!)
But this homemade honey mustard dressing is having a moment in my family.
It’s super smooth and creamy, with just the right touch of sweetness. You’ll be drizzling it over salads and dunking everything from french fries to chicken strips all day long! I think you’re going to love it as much as we do!
Honestly, I’ve been on a kick where I’m creating our dinner menu around the dressing/dip…it’s becoming a problem. 😉
How to make homemade honey mustard sauce
Add mayonnaise, mustard, honey, vinegar, and black pepper to a small bowl.
Whisk until smooth and creamy.
Yep, that’s it! It honestly doesn’t get easier than whisking together a few things you probably already have in your kitchen!
Storing honey mustard
Honey mustard does have mayonnaise, which means you’ll want to store it in the fridge.
We keep ours in a mason jar so that it’s ready to grab and go whenever we like.
We don’t keep ours longer than a week, but I am admittedly very conservative when it comes to food safety. It’s likely safe for a few weeks, assuming all ingredients used are fresh.
Recipes that go great with honey mustard
Be sure to snag the recipe for my Oven Fried Chicken Strips, it is the classic dish for honey mustard. And these chicken strips don’t taste like they are from an oven – they taste fried!
Serve these with some battered french fries!
If fries aren’t your style we love ranch roasted potatoes and yes, ranch + honey mustard is the perfect combo!
Honey mustard dressing works very well with a typical side salad.
For a lower carb meal serve it with breaded baked pork chops.
